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.
