Our goal is to understand how tumor immune microenvironment changes toward finding immunotherapeutic biomarkers and targets.
Our laboratory is designed to enable cells to protect their genomes against toxic molecules, whether the toxins are formed during normal oxidative life, cancer therapy, metabolism of environmental toxicants or exposure to ionizing radiation.
Our research focuses on identifying sources of intratumoral heterogeneity and determining how such heterogeneity impacts prevention and treatment in the clinic.
Our research focuses on the molecular biology of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) nuclear proteins, their role in the virus lifecycle and the pathogenesis of EBV associated malignancies.
Our lab focuses on determining the mechanisms of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) replication and pathogenesis, and also uses the virus as a tool to probe the pathways that lead to cell cycle progression and oncogenesis.
Our lab focused upon understanding the molecular regulation and pathogenesis of the human herpesvirus, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).
Our lab’s research is focused on understanding the role of human papillomavirus (HPV) in cancer.
Our lab studies the mechanisms of RNA encapsidation, initiation and synthesis of minus-strand DNA, initiation and synthesis of plus-strand DNA, and genome circularization during plus-strand DNA synthesis.
We study how viruses localize to cellular sites on the host genome to establish infection by hijacking the cell’s replication and repair machinery.
Our group’s primary interest involves regulation of gene expression and mechanisms of oncogenesis by DNA tumor viruses implicated in a variety of human cancers.
Our lab has pursued a variety of research interests centered around cell signaling and asked "what happens when cells are no longer able to communicate effectively?"
