The goal of Dr. Kuchipudi's research is to generate knowledge that can underpin the development of novel diagnostic tools and intervention therapies for endemic and emerging viral diseases of animals and humans.
Current research in the Kuchipudi lab involves a range of viruses of veterinary and zoonotic importance.
Influenza A viruses:
•Role of Nod Like Receptors (NLRs) in virus pathogenesis
• The interplay between influenza viruses and alveolar macrophages
•Investigating the role of bats as a potential reservoir of influenza A viruses (IAVs)
•Comparative genomics of Bovine coronaviruses (BCoVs)
•Molecular pathogenesis of Zika virus
•Comparative genomics of clinical and vaccine strains of Bovine Herpes Virus-1 (BHV-1)
