Our group is actually involved in the analysis of the mechanisms used by dengue virus to enter into epithelium cells, human macrophages and mosquito cells as well as in the characterization of the cell signals activated in response to dengue virus entry and replication.

On the other hand, we are working in the identification of cellular and viral factors implicated in plasma leakage during dengue hemorrhagic fever. Additionally, we are studying dengue virus replicative complexes in mammalian and mosquito cells.

Finally, production of recombinant dengue virus proteins and the characterization of thermosensitive mutants of dengue virus will give us important clues for vaccines design
