Research

Given the ever-present global burden of influenza virus and newly emerging pathogens such as west nile, yellow fever, and dengue virus, the study of host-virus interactions can result in discoveries that have immediate impact on human health. We focus on the study of cellular recognition and the transcriptional response to RNA virus infections in an effort to develop novel vaccine strategies. Focus areas include virus-induced cell signaling and the interplay between infection and microRNA-mediated posttranscriptional gene silencing.
