The Ivanovic lab investigates the molecular mechanisms of viral cell entry in the context of influenza virus and reovirus. With the focus on fundamental aspects of enveloped-virus membrane fusion and nonenveloped-virus membrane penetration, we seek to understand adaptive changes in essential viral mechanisms that result in viral pandemics or resistance to antivirals. We apply and develop advanced biophysical and biochemical approaches and combine them with those of virology, molecular biology and cell biology.
