Researching SARS-CoV-2

Our laboratory is focusing its efforts to model, dissect and understand the recognition of the SARS-CoV-2 virus by the epithelial cells. In particular we seek to answer how genetic variation in the epithelial receptor, ACE2, and the virus can cross-talk in order to finely modulate infection.
Please check the Publication List or announcement sections for work related to the research of this new virus that has so greatly affected and altered our lives.

announcement #1 (on cross-species transmission): Which reasons are behind the fact that some species get infected by SARS-CoV-2 while others don’t?
