Maruyama Lab

The Maruyama Lab (PI: Junki Maruyama) was established in 2023 at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. Our research focuses on virology, from basic to translational science, such as the pathogenic mechanisms of viruses that cause hemorrhagic fevers, the establishment of animal models of infectious diseases, and the development of vaccines/therapies and diagnostics against highly pathogenic viruses. We are currently working on arenaviruses (Lassa, Junin, Machupo, Guanarito, Sabia, and Chapare viruses), filiviruses (Ebola and Marburg viruses), Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus, influenza A viruses, and SARS-CoV-2 in BSL/ABSL-2, BSL/ABSL-3, and BSL/ABSL-4 laboratories.

We are looking for future lab members as graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research scientists, etc. Please contact Dr. Junki Maruyama ( if you are interested.
