COVID-19 Animal Models
Interaction between SARS-CoV-2 and a herpesvirus in a mouse model.
Recently published the first study to show animal model for SARS-CoV-2 that reproduces human COVID-19 infection and transmission. This animal model is key for drug and vaccine development.
Studying mouse fasting and fasting-mimicking diets (FMD) for improving immune system function in the elderly without causing detrimental side effects and increasing vaccination efficacy.
Generating and Testing Small Molecule Inhibitors of SARS-CoV-2; Developing an Animal Model for In Vivo Testing
Studying host cell response to COVID-19 and establishing mouse models for studying the pathogenesis.
