Current studies include
• Mapping the genetic changes in avian influenza viruses that influence their transmissibility, virulence and host-range.
• Mapping the antigenic changes in avian influenza viruses that influence their antigenicity and protective efficacy
• Improving vaccines that confer protection against multiple viral diseases of poultry
• Improving diagnostics that allow rapid, sensitive, easy to use and reliable diagnostic tests that simultaneously detect and subtype AI viruses infecting animals at the pen-side.
