Our work focuses on the cell and molecular biology of interactions that occur between animal viruses and their host cells during the infectious cycle. Our group also studies the mechanisms by which newly synthesized proteins acquire their native, folded structure in the living mammalian cell.

Specific Contribution to Research in InfectX
The group will perform genome-wide RNAi screens to identify human proteins involved in entry of vaccinia virus.
