David I. Stuart’s research interests include the structure of viruses, viral proteins, and cellular proteins that interact with viruses. He has made many important contriubtions to the study of structural virology, including the determination of the structures of foot-and-mouth disease virus, bluetongue virus and the membrane-containing phages PRD1 and PM2. His work has set new records for atomic resolution of such large and complex structures. Stuart also colalborates on a number of projects investigating how viruses interact with receptors and how they evolve.
