    Our research team studies how localization in the three-dimensional space of the nucleus regulates viral transcription. We are specifically interested in the effects of chromosome shape and chromatin on gene regulation. To perform these experiments, we focus on the Epstein-Barr virus, human papilloma virus, HIV, and others. We then use the basic science we learn to identify potential drugs to treat viral infections and cancer.
