Research Profile

Viruses are responsible for ~5-10% of human cancers. Our laboratory studies mechanisms related to how viral infection leads to human cancers. We are particularly interested in how viral protein interactions with host regulatory proteins lead to cellular reprogramming of gene expression and cell growth. Our work is largely centered around studies of human adenovirus, human papillomavirus and Epstein-Barr virus. We work closely with clinicians treating virally associated cancers, particularly in the Departments of Oncology and Otolarygology-Head and Neck Surgery.
