To complement our skills in basic virology, molecular biology and biochemical methods we collaborate with various (super-intelligent) scientists. By doing this we are building an integrated multidisciplinary toolkit.
Virus vs Microscope
Viruses are really small, so we are using advanced microscopy to study them. Working with Dr. Ed Cohen, statistician extraordinaire, we have devised novel molecular counting methods to precisely quantify the interaction of antibodies with individual virus particles.
Virus vs Computer
Virus vs Maths
Through hypothesis-led experiments we build working models of how virus entry and immune evasion is likely to be happening. Collaboration with Dr. Chris Illingworth has allowed us to build mathematical frameworks to describe these models, analyse our data and predict the outcome of interventions that alter virus entry.
