I am primarily interested in virus host cell interactions with an emphasis on the common cold virus, adenovirus. I have been looking at how this virus interacts with the host cell using state of the art techniques including laser confocal microscopy, high throughput quantitative mass spectrometry and, most recently, Deep Sequencing (or Next Generation Sequencing) of adenovirus infected cells. In addition, I am working to develop new approaches to study how recombinant adenovirus vectors interact with the host during gene therapy treatment.
Adenovirus is often regarded as a model virus system and has been very useful in understanding not only how viruses infect and take over cells but it has also helped us to understand how cells work normally. Most recently, this virus has been developed as a gene therapy system and as a prospective cancer-killing virus. Thus, understanding how adenovirus interacts with human cells underpins the development of this virus as a new treatment for cancer and genetically inherited diseases.
