To advance in the understanding and treatment of the COVID-19 disease, through a structural study of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Highly pathogenic human respiratory coronaviruses cause an acute lethal disease characterized by exuberant inflammatory responses and lung damage. This project will study molecular assembly of the SARS-CoV-2 virus from the novel perspective of intramembrane interactions of structural viral proteins, little explored to date.
