Personal profile

Research Interests

Robert Lamb's laboratory studies the structure, replication and assembly of influenza virus and paramyxoviruses, a family of viruses that includes mumps virus, measles virus, parainfluenza virus 1-5, Newcastle disease virus, canine distemper virus and Hendra and Nipah virus. In particular the laboratory studies the structural mechanism by which paramyxoviruses causes virus-cell and cell-cell fusion and how influenza virus and paramyxoviruses assembly and bud from the plasma membrane of virus-infected cell.
