Project description

Human RSV is the most common cause of lower respiratory tract infection in infants. There is no vaccine available against this virus. The aim is to characterize host-controlled signaling kinases that are used and activated by RSV. Those kinases kan be targeted and serve as potential new anti-RSV drugs.
