Research has found a way to block the Marburg virus from spreading.
Marburg virus-like particles (in green, which are not infectious) “bud,” or exit from the surface of a host cell, with help from a host protein (in yellow). The Ron Harty Lab and colleagues have identified a compound that can reduce the ability of the Marburg virus to spread in an animal model by blocking the host-viral interaction.

Research Laboratories at Penn Vet


Penn Vet faculty are engaged in ongoing groundbreaking research. Here are examples of faculty laboratories and the projects being investigated, both at our Philadelphia campus and at New Bolton Center.

Lennon Mucosal Immunology Laboratory

Lennon Lab Team 760

Welcome to the Lennon Mucosal Immunology Laboratory where we study Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

We believe that by studying naturally occurring IBD in dogs and cats we can improve treatment for people and pets with this debilitating condition. 

Interested in Working With Us?

We are always seeking highly motivated students, post-doctoral fellows, or veterinarians who are interested in becoming involved in research.
