Our lab focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying herpes simplex virus (HSV) latency and reactivation. These processes are central to the human disease caused by this virus. Our research efforts encompass many approaches, from in vitro biochemical and molecular studies to the development and utilization of refined in vivo model systems.
Recently, we have made an observation that shifts the HSV reactivation paradigm, identifying an essential role for the viral tegument protein VP16 in the earliest stages of HSV reactivation in neurons in vivo.
Several ongoing projects stem from this observation:
Our additional areas of investigation include:
