We aim to understand the mechanisms of HPV infection, the cellular responses to HPV infection, and how the interplay between host and virus influences the outcome

Approximately 795,000 Americans suffer a stroke each year, and 400,000 will experience long-term disability. The number of stroke survivors in the population is expected to double by 2025. Currently, treatments for stroke patients are limited to tissue plasminogen activator (TPA), but its use is limited to the first few hours after stroke. Therefore, the goal of our research is to develop new therapeutics that can promote repair and recovery in this rapidly growing population.

Dr. Goodrum's long-standing research focus is to understand the molecular virus-host interactions important to human cytomegalovirus (CMV) latency and persistence in the host. Her recent work has defined the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) as primary pathway targeted by these viral determinants to switch between latent and replicative states of infection. The goal of their research program is to define the mechanistic underpinnings of HCMV latency and lay the foundation for clinical interventions to control CMV disease in all settings.

Metals such as calcium and iron are essential to living organisms. Some metals in excess, like copper, are detrimental to bacteria. My laboratory studies this phenomenon in Streptococcus pneumoniae to find novels method for killing pathogenic bacteria.

Michael Kuhns' research program is focused on (i) increasing our basic understanding of how T cell fate decisions are made (e.g. development, activation, differentiation, effector functions), and (ii) increasing their working knowledge of how to manipulate these decisions to direct T cells towards a desired outcome, such as increasing responses to vaccines or tumors, preventing transplant rejection, or attenuating autoimmunity.

All viruses hijack host cell machinery to facilitate their replication. My lab investigates how the production of infectious viral progeny relies on host metabolism. Our overall goal is to guide the development of novel antiviral therapies using information regarding how viruses hijack host metabolism.

How do bacteria "talk" to the body? How does the body reply to the microbe? How does this conversation affect your health and well being?
