Project Details

Description

Human hantavirus infections cause hantavirus cardiopulmonary syndrome (HCPS) and hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) with fatal consequences. No FDA-approved drugs or vaccines exist for these viruses. Although more than 40 different hantaviruses have been discovered recently, most of them are poorly studied because of the lack of way to study them. Our proposal will generate the molecular virologic tools necessary to understand the biology of these highly important but less studied viruses.
