Welcome

ASKLEPIOS aims to unravel and increase our understanding of the mechanisms that govern pathogenesis of rabies virus infection, in pursuit of the rational identification of novel therapeutic leads for rabies encephalitis.

Several studies have been conducted over the past decades attempting to unravel the pathogenesis of this deadly disease, however with limited success.

New knowledge on the mechanisms of the RABV life-cycle and interaction with the host is needed to identify clinically applicable therapeutic leads, in search of rational intervention strategies.
