The Lakdawala Lab at the University of Pittsburgh

Welcome! Our lab focuses on emergence of pandemic respiratory viruses from influenza to coronaviruses. Our work spans across scales from cells to animal models to humans to communities. We use cutting-edge microscopy tools to study how viruses replicate inside cells -check out or image gallery and movies page. In addition, we study influenza airborne transmission of respiratory viruses in the animal models.
