About Kariem Ezzat Ahmed

I work with viruses, I am mainly interested in viral interaction with extracellular host factors, the Viral Protein Corona, and how these factors affect infectivity, tropism, immunogenicity and species barriers, and I am using this knowledge to develop new methods for better viral vector and vaccine design and production. I also study the overlap between viral and amyloid pathologies in the extra-...

I work with viruses, I am mainly interested in viral interaction with extracellular host factors, the Viral Protein Corona, and how these factors affect infectivity, tropism, immunogenicity and species barriers, and I am using this knowledge to develop new methods for better viral vector and vaccine design and production. I also study the overlap between viral and amyloid pathologies in the extra- and intracellular microenvironments. More info: http://biorxiv.org/cgi/content/short/246785v1
