About Dr. Blair

My research interests are in arthropod-borne viruses and their interactions with both mosquito vectors and vertebrate hosts. I have many years of experience in virology, particularly in using genetic and molecular biological methods in a variety of cell cultures and animal models, both arthropod and vertebrate. My currently active projects involve use of novel molecular biological techniques for development of humanized monoclonal antibodies as therapeutic agents for arbovirus infections, a collaboration between CSU, CDC, University of Wyoming,and German scientists; and use of liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry for discovery of small molecule biomarkers for dengue diagnosis and prognosis, a collaboration with CSU and University of California scientists. Recent research projects have been on the mechanisms of mosquito RNA-based antiviral immunity and on structures of arbovirus glycoproteins and their influence on host cell entry, antibody binding and virus host range.
