About the Hanley Lab
In the Hanley lab, we investigate the molecular biology, evolution and ecology of emerging RNA viruses like dengue and Zika, with the goal of using this basic knowledge to design better methods to control the spread of these dangerous pathogens.
We currently focus on five main avenues of research (see Projects link for more details):
• Mechanisms of sylvatic arthropod-borne virus (arbovirus) emergence, with a focus on sylvatic dengue, Zika, chikungunya and yellow fever
study of RNA viruses are always welcome to contact Dr. Hanley about research opportunities in her lab.
