Ke lab to lead a DARPA funded project to fight influenza

The lab will lead a DARPA funded ($5M+) project to understand the functional organization of influenza virus and develop novel evolution-proof gene therapeutics. Read the news release here.

We will develop and integrate a series of technical and conceptual breakthroughs to make fundamental discoveries about how viral population ecology at the cellular, organismal, and between-host levels influences viral evolution, transmission, and pathogenicity.
