Work / Animation / Dengue Viral Fusion
XVIVO created this short clip for Dr. Irene Bosch, Ph.D. of UMass and Dr. Yorgo Modis, Ph.D. of Yale University. This educational animation was intended for use by PBS TV in order to illustrate the mechanism by which the Dengue Virus (DENV) fuses with its endocytotic vesicle, allowing viral material to escape into the cytosol and begin infection.

Through their creative prowess and technical mastery, XVIVO is defining and redefining the very frontier of scientific animation. As science and medicine explore increasingly remote realms, their work provides a vital link allowing researchers and the general public to grasp visually an astonishing landscape of new possibilities.
