About the Special Issue Editors Fang Li is an Associate Professor in the Department of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Minnesota. His main line of research examines the invasion mechanisms of viruses. Specifically, his group investigates the structures and functions of virus-surface proteins that mediate receptor recognition and cell entry of viruses. His other line of research explores the structural and molecular basis for cancer and abnormal blood pressure. Specifically, his group investigates the structures and functions of mammalian-cell-surface enzymes that are critical for tumor cell growth and blood pressure regulation. Based on these structural and functional studies, his group further develops novel therapy strategies to treat human diseases. His research tools include X-ray crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy, protein biochemistry, molecular virology, and vaccine and drug designs. Lanying Du is an Associate Member and Head of Viral Immunology Laboratory at Lindsley F. Kimball Research Institute of New York Blood Center, USA. Her research focuses are to: (1) design and develop effective and safe vaccines and therapeutic agents against coronaviruses (including MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and other coronaviruses with pandemic potential), influenza viruses, and flaviviruses (including the Zika virus and dengue virus); (2) understand protective mechanisms of the developed vaccines and therapeutics; and (3) study pathogenic mechanisms of these viruses, based on which to design novel vaccines and therapeutics. Her research tools include structure-based design of novel vaccines and therapeutics, mRNA technology, drug screening, and antibody production and evaluation.
