Virus-Virus-Host Interactions

We use novel RNA and DNA virus co-infection assays to identify virus-encoded immune evasion factors.

Poxvirus Pathogenesis

We study how these large, complex, and highly pathogenic viruses manipulate the host cell to promote their own replication.

Invertebrate Model Systems

We use newly developed virus-invertebrate host systems to identify antiviral factors encoded by eukaryotic organisms.

Research

Central to any virus life cycle is the replication of virus genetic material. However, the intracellular environment that viruses require for their replication is also the very thing that could destroy them.
