Susan Daniel, along with collaborators, Gary Whittaker, David Eliezer, and Jack Freed, have been awarded an NIH R01 grant to study Coronavirus infection

Coronaviruses (CoVs) are a major infectious disease threat for humans and animals, with several recent examples of zoonotic transmission including severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)-CoV, and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS)-CoV. Entry of CoVs into host cells is mediated by the viral spike (S) protein, a complex biomolecular machine that controls both receptor binding and membrane fusion. CoVs have a novel and adaptable fusion peptide (FP) within the S, which plays a role in the adaptable nature of CoV infection of many types of cells. The goal of this project is to reveal CoV S...
