A $14.7 M CFI Innovation Fund Award is announced, to support a proposal for 'Infrastructure to Support the Discovery and Development of Innovative Viroceuticals'. This infrastructure grant supports the work of virologists, immunologists and vaccine researchers from the University of Ottawa (lead), Dalhousie University, and the University of Alberta. Drs. Roy Duncan and Craig McCormick led the team of Dalhousie researchers, who will benefit from new super-resolution microscopy and flow cytometry infrastructure.

Denys publishes a paper in PLoS Pathogens describing the mechanism of selective host mRNA destruction by influenza virus PA-X endonuclease. Data suggests that PA-X works in nucleus at some early step of mRNA biogenesis. A very productive (and speedy!) collaboration with our colleagues in Marta Gaglia’s lab at Tufts U.
