Our research focuses on plant viruses, arboviruses and insect viruses, with special interest in virus-host and virus-vector interactions.
Plant viruses form a major threat for crops and ornamentals. Arboviruses are transmitted by insects and cause disease in humans and animals. Insect-infecting viruses are used to control pest insects and as gene vector to produce recombinant proteins for pharmaceuticals and vaccines.
