Research interests

We use a multidisciplinary approach to study the intimate relationship of a virus and the organism it infects. We focus on dissecting the early events that determine the course of infection with various respiratory viruses. The laboratory places particular attention to the role of defective viral genomes generated during virus replication in determining the outcome of infection.
