The fellowship award provides a grant of £1.8M for 2017-2022, for research employing state-of-the-art molecular imaging techniques (cryo-electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction), to study molecular machines present in several viruses such as Zika and herpes.
The research will provide detailed information about what the machines look like and how they function, which will in turn inform the development of new treatments that can prevent or reduce virus infections.
