Abstract

Cheng-Feng Qin's major research interests focus on the pathogenesis of mosquito-borne flavivirus. One unique feature of his work is to translate the knowledge from basic research to the development of vaccine and therapy. Current ongoing projects in his lab include: 1) to identify and characterize viral virulence determinants and regulatory RNA elements; 2) to rationally design live-attenuated flavivirus vaccines by reverse genetic technology; and 3) to improve vaccine stability and efficacy by using combined genetic and nano technologies.
