The study of the life cycles of viruses and their effects on infected hosts. Viral life cycles include entry, genome release from the virus particles, genome replication, viral protein synthesis, viral assembly and egress from the infected cells. Infections can be acute, chronic or latent depending on the host-pathogen interactions which include direct cytopathic effects plus immune mediated modulation of virus biosynthesis and disease.
|Donna MacDuff||Microbiology and Immunology||Our research focuses on how the sensing of pathogenic and commensal microbes regulates inflammation and innate immunity.|
|Mark D. McCauley||Medicine||My lab is interested in cardiac arrhythmias and contractility. Specifically, we are studying how atrial fibrillation causes stroke.|
