Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My research interest is focused on Herpes virus pathogenesis and the host immune response to these viral infections. To characterize these interactions, we use flow-cytometry based immunology assays, culture-based assays, molecular techniques and tissue histology. My current study investigates anti-viral immunity to CMV in lung transplant patients to characterize the kinetics of CMV-specific T-cell reconstitution and to test its ability to predict CMV infection and allograft rejection.
