"I became interested in virology during my rotation in the Terhune Laboratory. After I began to understand the complex cellular pathways manipulated by human cytomegalovirus during infection, I began to appreciate how identifying key players in these pathways can lead to the production of therapies to combat the virus. Our lab focuses on identifying molecular mechanisms of viral infection. Currently, I am interested in examining viral protein post translation modifications and the downstream effects of these modifications within the cell."
