John Connor, PhD, Associate Professor of Microbiology, Boston University School of Medicine. Connor Lab

Viruses have become an increasingly common topic in the news. From Ebola to MERS-CoV, well-known and previously unknown viruses are migrating across borders and around the globe in our highly connected world. The continuing emergence of new viral diseases underscores the fact that humanity will likely contend with viruses for many years to come. How viruses are transmitted, how infections are recognized and how outbreaks can be contained are the concerns of the John Connor Lab at Boston University. Dr. Connor explains virus infections and how medical research and new technologies are working to control the health threat of viruses.
