INTER-ACTION project with Dr. Marshall E. Bloom, NIAID


Prof. L. Grubhoffer is a PI of a newly funded project "Flavivirus-host interactions on the transcriptional and translational level", in collaboration with Dr. Marshall E. Bloom (Laboratory of Virology, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, NIH, Rocky Mountain Laboratories, USA).

The proposed project is aimed at description of interaction between the tick-borne encephalitis virus and other flaviviruse with host cells on the level of transciption and translation and description of the effects of infection on the cell processes. Further, the viral effectors of host protein production inhibition will be identified.
