Credentials: Defining the interactions between host and pathogen is key to understanding infectious disease pathogenesis. I study host-influenza virus interactions, looking specifically at the effects of host IFIT proteins on influenza virus replication. I study the mechanisms by which the canonically antiviral IFIT2 and IFIT3 proteins play pro-viral roles during influenza virus infection.
