Transmission of Emerging Viruses


The overall objective of the "Transmission of Emerging Viruses" group focuses on the interactions between host organisms and emerging viruses.

The scientific project will be based on understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in the infection process, viral tropism, immune escape strategies of viruses, and viral pathogenesis. This knowledge will contribute to developing future antiviral strategies.

The questions are:

What are the molecular dialogues established into cells in response to arbovirus replication?

What is the impact of co-infections on arbovirus transmission?

What are the salivary factors and bacterial communities of vectors that modulate the vertebrate host response to arbovirus infection in the target cells?

Among viruses, arboviruses are involved in the majority of global emerging infectious diseases. Approximately 500 identified arboviruses exist, most of them belonging to the family Togaviridae, Flaviviridae, Bunyaviridae, Reoviridae and Rhabdoviridae. Arboviruses will be the thematic priority, but other emerging viruses will be studied closely with the ESF "EZV".
