Research

Our laboratory investigates the interactions between herpesviruses (particularly Kaposi's Sarcoma associated herpesvirus and Human herpesvirus 6) and the immune response of their host. This allows us to gain insights into the molecular mechanisms of viral pathogenesis, immunology as well as cell biology.
