Herpesviruses and host cells interactions

Herpesviruses and host cell interactions

Herpesviruses are able to establish lifelong latency in the host. Our laboratory is studying strategies used by human herpesvirus 6A/B to circumvent the antiviral host cell responses. Ongoing projects include:

  • Inhibition of apoptosis by herpesvirus 6A/B
  • Modulation of p53 activity during herpesvirus 6A/B infection
