The long-term goal of my research program is to better understand molecular mechanisms of interactions between animal viruses and their hosts in order to develop new strategies for effective control of viral infections. In my laboratory, we study molecular mechanisms of virus-host interactions of different viruses: the porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV, a coronavirus), the Aleutian mink disease virus (AMDV, a parvovirus), the porcine influenza virus, various arboviruses (Zika, dengue, etc.). Additionally, we are interested in studying viral pathogens that infect the honeybees (virome studies). Host-virus interactions are highly dynamic and may involve multiprotein complexes. My group is using cutting-edge molecular biology, microscopy, proteomics, classical and molecular virology approaches to decipher the interplay of the key molecular factors of the virus infection that contribute to the unique pathogenesis of the animal viruses that are  important for human and animal health. I believe that science popularization plays an important role in enhancing public service, promotes scientific literacy and awareness of global health.
