Laboratory of Virus-Host Interactions

We use a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach to understand the intimate relationship of a virus population and the organism it infects. We do this while training the next generation of scientists to gain and disseminate knowledge while improving their technical, critical, and mentoring skills.

We are relocating to Washington University in St. Louis in 2020

...and we are hiring!

Projects available in a variety of topics including investigating how viruses survive in complex host environments, how viruses evolve, adapt, and persist, and how the composition of the viral population impacts infection outcome.

***If interested in Graduate School, please use the appropriate institution website for applications. I can not take PHD students directly into my laboratory***
