MD Student with Scholarly Concentration in Bioengineering, expected graduation Spring 2014
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interest is translational molecular virology, focusing on hepatitis viruses. Using both biophysical and genetic tools, I aim to identify viral and host targets that are essential in the viral life cycle and subsequently develop high-throughput assays to identify novel compounds that can inhibit these targets. I also have a particular interest in understanding the linkage between various chronic viral infections and cancer through studying how such infections disturb the innate and adaptive immune systems and facilitate the development of cancer.
