Research Abstract

We are interested in viruses that are casually associated with human cancer at the basic, translational and clinical level. Current studies are focused on the human gammaherpesvirus EBV and more recently KSHV (HHV-8). We investigate the process of virus binding to cells and viral tropism, with emphasis on the cellular receptors and viral attachment proteins. Additional studies in the laboratory address the relationship of viral gene expression to the development of cellular genetic changes that predispose to tumorgenesis. Translational studies in the laboratory have focused on characterizing the EBV/KSHV thymidine kinases as a potential targets for antiviral antitumor based therapies.
