Emerging zoonotic viral diseases have become a major threat to human health and global economy.  In this seminar, I will first present our effort in fighting COVID-19 and the finding of multiple organ tropisms and server disease model of SARS-CoV-2 infection of hACE2 transgenic mice. I will then present our data on the origins and evolution of HIV-1 virulence using a hu-BLT mice experimental approach as well as our progress on the HIV transmission, vaccine development and cure.
