A main interest of our research group is to identify molecules and mechanisms involved in virus entry into and infection of target cells. This step regulates which cells, tissues and organs that are infected. More and better knowledge about the molecular interactions involved in this step can help design and development of antiviral drugs, but also help design and development – and targeting – of viral vectors to be used for treatment of i.e. cancer, or as vaccines, to prevent against heterologous pathogens.
