Research Synopsis

My interdisciplinary PhD project focuses on the interaction of Vaccinia Virus with its cellular host. Using a wide range of classical and state-of-the-art techniques we are investigating the effects of Vaccinia Virus infection, characterizing the phenotype, define the (viral) effector proteins, and elucidate the underlying mechanism(s).
