Arboviruses, including flaviviruses and alphaviruses, are the most prevalent mosquito-borne viral pathogens worldwide. For example, approximately 2/3 of the world’s population is at risk for infection by dengue virus, yellow fever virus, West Nile virus, or related flaviviruses. Arbovirus infection can result in disease symptoms ranging from mild flu-like illness to debilitating encephalitis or death. Because arboviral infection is such a large health and socio-economic problem globally, my research has focused on finding ways to reduce human disease caused by these mosquito-borne viruses. We have a number of collaborative basic and translational research projects that involve flaviviruses (dengue, West Nile, and yellow fever) and alphaviruses (Sindbis, Chikungunya).

The Slayden laboratory uses this information in a multi-disciplinary approach to drug discovery and development of preclinical lead compounds with efficacy against targeted bacterial populations, in particular multi-drug resistant M. tuberculosis, F. tularensis, B. pseudomallei and Y. pestis specialized to evading host defenses and drugs.  This research allows for targeting of the unique metabolic activities of these bacterial populations.

One of the principal goals of the lab is to discover new viruses and to understand if and how they cause disease. We  are driven by several motivating factors in this effort: (1) the possibility of improved diagnostics, treatments, and vaccines for infectious diseases of previously unknown etiology, (2) an improved understanding of basic biology, including virus evolution, virus-host interactions, mechanisms of pathogenesis, cellular function, and immune response, (3) a clearer picture of potential zoonotic threats, (4) the opportunity to develop new tools and methods for accomplishing these goals, and (5) the thrill of discovery.  Another main goal of the lab is to better understand the viral and host factors and human practices that are driving virus evolution.
