Gary Whittaker, Microbiology and Immunology

My lab has a broad interest in the structure and function of viral envelope proteins, and how genomic mutations lead to changes in the envelope proteins and control viral pathogenesis. We primarily study influenza viruses of humans and animals, and coronaviruses, principally, SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and feline coronaviruses.  We are developing novel vaccines and diagnostic tests.
