How herpesvirus promote viral persistence and oncogenesis
Postdoctoral Fellow: Cornell University Medical College
Ph.D.: McGill University
B.Sc.: Queen's University
Fields of Interest:
- Cellular and Molecular Structure and Function
- Molecular Microbiology and Infectious Disease
We study how herpesvirus proteins (particularly Epstein-Barr virus) manipulate nuclear processes to promote viral persistence and contribute to oncogenesis, often using proteomics methods. We also study how PML nuclear bodies are regulated and disrupted by viral proteins, and the functions of a novel DNA replication protein that we discovered by proteomics.
