We study viruses that infect humans, and apply the lessons learned to new and emerging viruses. We combine broad expertise—in virology, cell biology, biochemistry, systems biology and chromatin biology—with a diverse and highly collaborative approach.
Founded at the peak of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, our lab has since broadened its scope to other endemic viruses and to newly emerging ones.
We focus on human host factors restricting or enabling viral infections, and we build and study complex primary cell systems such as organoids to model physiological conditions closely. We also look for host pathways shared by multiple viruses to develop drugs that could thwart multiple pathogens.
Studying the viruses of today to prepare for the viruses of tomorrow.
