Our laboratory takes multidisciplinary approaches to herpesvirus replication and latency. Because herpesviruses such as herpes simplex virus (HSV) and human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) are important pathogens, we seek to exploit differences between herpesvirus and cellular processes for safe and effective antiviral therapy. Research projects could include investigations of the roles of microRNAs during productive and latent infections, testing the importance of potential drug targets for viral replication, screening for new antiviral compounds, and analysis of mechanisms of resistance to current antiviral drugs.
