Project Title: 
Structural Virology

The Mendonça Lab studies how viruses such as HIV-1 and SARS-CoV-2 subvert host cellular pathways to replicate and to transmit between susceptible cells. The researchers use integrative imaging approaches that include state-of-the-art techniques like cryoelectron microscopy and tomography (cryoEM/ET), cryo focused ion beam and scanning electron microscopy (cryoFIB/SEM), and correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM). By doing so, they can reveal novel molecular weak links that can be exploited to fight viral diseases.
