    Research Summary

    We study the role of host-virus interactions in viral pathogenesis. In particular, we are interested in how respiratory syncytial virus affects host signal transduction pathways to enhance viral replication. We use a combination of biochemical, molecular and cell biological, and virological techniques to examine these questions.
