The ability to study anti-viral technologies to the pandemic viruses SARS-CoV2 and Influenza viruses is obstructed by limited access to high quality and physiological relevant experimental systems. We have established the human primary epithelial model to study the infection of these important viruses. This model provides a primary human model which replicates the human tissue where these viruses infect and replicate. Our goal is to improve and scale this model to provide a platform for industrial and/or scientific partners to test the applicability of their anti-viral technologies.
