My lab is interested in the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and how it carries out life-long infections, subverts host antiviral responses and promotes oncogenesis. We use proteomics methods to discover 1) the roles of the many (~80) EBV encoded proteins in manipulating cellular processes to promote cell survival and infection, 2) cellular proteins that restrict EBV infection and 3) the role of SUMO modifications in regulating viral infections.
