RESEARCH SUMMARY

His research initially focused on the study of the viral entry step. He investigated the kinetics of entry, the interaction of viral proteins with target membranes, the participation of host factors and the overall inhibition of the fusion process. This work has also led to the establishment of a novel technique for the inactivation of enveloped viruses. Mathias Viard also looked at the interaction of particles with cells in the context of RNA delivery. His current research aims at understanding the influences of genetic variations at the HLA and KIR loci on disease risk or outcome upon treatment.
