RESEARCH DESCRIPTION:

Our lab studies the epigenetic control of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) transcription and its impact on intrinsic and innate immune pathways, productive viral replication, latency, and pathogenesis. We also exam how HCMV and Epstein Barr virus (EBV) modulate cell cycle pathways to impact virus replication and oncogenicity.
