UofSC Upstate, Division of Natural Sciences and Engineering

Biochemistry

I am a biochemist. Over the past three years, my laboratory has been working on nonstructural protein 1 (nsp1) of SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV) which shows 79% sequence homology to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19 or SARS-CoV-2). Nsp1 is a host shutoff protein that selectively triggers cleavage and degradation of host messenger RNAs, essentially blocking host protein synthesis. We have shown that this intrinsically disordered protein binds to several host proteins that aid the host shutoff, and especially disrupts nuclear-cytoplasmic trafficking. Currently, we are expanding our understanding of SARS-CoV nsp1 to COVID-19.

My lab studies the function of intracellular immune genes that are up-regulated during responses to respiratory RNA virus infections. We are looking to investigate how host factors expressed during SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) infection:
1) Contribute to inflammatory signaling, which may be a risk factor for ARDS or cytokine storms
2) Affect susceptibility to secondary infections

We are also interested in identifying SARS-CoV-2 viral motifs that are important in triggering the antiviral immune response during infection.

 

Patel, Rekha

UofSC Columbia, College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Biological Sciences

Biochemistry, Virology  I am a biochemist who works on protein-protein interactions. In particular I have over 30 years of experience in studying an antiviral protein kinase, PKR, which is an interferon-induced protein. Interferons are antiviral cytokines produced by all infected cells in our bodies. PKR is involved in shutting off host cell protein synthesis during viral infections and every virus has a mechanism that prevents PKR activity so it can replicate itself efficiently. In my lab we study how PKR is regulated and I am particularly interested in learning how SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19 prevents PKR activation so it can replicate efficiently in cells. SARS-CoV-1 and -2 also shut off interferon production and signaling in order to replicate efficiently. Interferon production and action as well as PKR activity severely limits virus replication. Once characterized, such mechanisms can be targeted by specific drugs to prevent PKR inhibition by SARS-CoV-2 and potentially limit virus replication. This is a promising avenue to explore which SARS-CoV-2 encoded protein inhibits PKR activity and then to look for drugs that efficiently prevent PKR inhibition and eliminate the virus replication. In many cases the virally encoded proteins prevent PKR activity by direct binding to PKR and potential drugs that disrupt such interactions will be potently antiviral and a promising therapeutic agent.

Biosensors, Biomarkers, Nanomaterials, Personalized Diagnostics SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus has recently emerged to cause a pandemic. While nucleic acid diagnostic tests were rapidly developed, serologic assays are still lacking but urgently needed. Validated serologic assays are important for detecting asymptomatic cases, doing contact tracing, identifying plasma donors, and conducting epidemiological studies. We recently developed a nanopore biosensor with femtomolar detection limit and high specificity for HIV serologic assay. Based on this method, we propose to develop a portable, semi-automatic, multiplex, quantitative assay device to detect SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in patients’ blood. With existing collaboration and approved IRB protocols, we will collect patient samples from Prisma Health to validate our assay.   

Sheth, Amit

UofSC Columbia, College of Engineering and Computing, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Artificial Intelligence Institute

Artificial Intelligence and Big Data 1. We are analyzing COVID-19 related news and social media data (so far analyzed >700K news, >400million tweets), to understand social quality (comparable to SAMSHA measures) including mental health/depression, addiction/opioid/substance use. The analysis is giving insights into the rapidly growing challenges related to mental health and addiction.
2. We are developing two related virtual assistants (chatbots) for COVID-19 and depression. These will have much more advanced capability compared to typical commercial informational chatbots, such as personalization, dynamic data (e.g., local resources), and integration with healthcare services. The depression assistant development and evaluation is in collaboration with the Neuropsychiatry & Behavioral Science department (Dr. Meera Narasimhan).
3. We are collaborating with the department of mechanical engineering/manufacturing automation program (Dr. Ramy Harik) to develop the capability to study the impact of COVID-19 epidemic on the state and nation's manufacturing industry and supply chain.

Sensing, Bio-Sensors, Ultrasonics Design and fabrication of mechatronics-based biosensors with point-of-care sensing mechanism: In our design, we utilize mechanical deformation, acoustic or ultrasonic waves for an electrical readout in the presence of specific biomarkers. Such a system (COVID-specific biosensors) can be designed for rapid inspection of COVID-specific antigens and antibodies (of course we seek collaboration). Our novel state-of-the-art design ensures high sensitivity and high specificity of the biosensors, simultaneously. Activities are intended to be used for rapid testing to accelerate the discovery of new anti-virus and vaccine. Our team has vast experience with the design of biosensors for cancer-specific biomarkers.  

Valtorta, Marco

UofSC Columbia, College of Engineering and Computing, Department of Computer Science and Engineering 

Artificial Intelligence, Probabilistic Graphical Models, Causal Models Our work on methodology and algorithms for learning and using Bayesian networks, causal Bayesian networks, chain graphs, Bayesian hypergraphs, and other probabilistic graphical models leads to principled and normative approaches to modeling disease. The models are explainable and suitable for risk analysis. They allow for explicit causal claims and are therefore amenable to interventional and counterfactual reasoning, which may, among other benefits, reduce the need for costly and ethically questionable experiments. Causal Bayesian networks also allow for a precise characterization of identifiability when latent (unobserved) variables are known to exist. Dynamic Bayesian networks have been used to model disease progression and have recently been proposed as a flexible and non-parametric tool to model the spread of transmissible disease, complementing approaches from network science.
