Research: Monocytes/Macrophages are the principal cell types responsible for the dissemination of HCMV to peripheral organs following primary infection. The focus of my research is to examine the unique combination of HCMV-mediated receptor/ligand interactions that trigger the distinct changes in infected monocytes that promote viral persistence.
