Bruce Lab

We are a research laboratory studying RNA viruses, within the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics (MMG) and the Translational Global Infectious Disease Research (TGIR) COBRE at the University of Vermont. 

Research Interests

We are focused on studying questions at the intersection of virology and cell biology, with a particular focus on the late stages of viral assembly and replication.  Favorite viruses include SARS-CoV-2 and influenza. We also look at how to streamline diagnostic testing for respiratory viruses, particularly SARS-CoV-2.


Happy 6 month birthday to the lab! Accepting all gifts in the form of P200 filter tips, or serological pipettes 😉

Our much delayed biosafety cabinets have finally arrived and the lab went out to lunch to celebrate

The Bruce lab opened its doors on March 1, 2021!  Stay tuned for more updates.
