                    [ProfileText] => My group is interested in the molecular virology and biochemistry of mosquito-borne Arboviruses. 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).

Dr. Wilusz’s laboratory channels his unique expertise in RNA stability to decipher the mechanisms of mRNA turnover in mammalian cells.  In 1999 the Wilusz laboratory reported the development of an in vitro assay using HeLa cell cytoplasmic S100 extracts that faithfully reproduces many aspects of regulated deadenylation/turnover of mammalian mRNAs. This system has become the centerpiece of research designed to extensively characterize mRNA decay in human cells, generally regarded as a major determinant of cell-phenotype-specific differentiation and physiology.

The major research goals of the Olson laboratory include identifying molecular strategies for interfering with the replication of human pathogens in mosquitoes. By using recombinant mosquito-borne Sindbis viruses to transduce mosquitoes with pathogen-derived RNAs and proteins, the Olson lab has been able to stop transmission of the pathogen in transgenic mosquitoes. Other important goals are to identify components of the RNAi pathway in mosquitoes and to characterize important arthropod-borne virus-mosquito interactions. Dr. Olson also conducts research associated with alphavirus-induced pathogenesis in mouse models and alphavirus-based gene expression in mosquitoes and mice.

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.
