Andrew Ward aims to find 3-D structures of proteins from microscopic organisms that cause disease, revealing weak spots that might be targeted with vaccines and drugs.
The findings from the Ollmann Saphire lab also provide new tools for detection of Ebola viruses.
A team from the Page lab has uncovered a mutation that alters the basic trajectory of early brain development.
The grants, directed by Associate Professor Andrew Ward, will provide new tools to collect and process high-resolution images of HIV proteins interacting with antibodies.
The Valente lab will lead the project aimed at a novel antiviral target to suppress the virus in latently infected cells.
