It is becoming increasingly clear that throughout latency (from establishment to maintenance and, ultimately, reactivation) there is a complex interplay between the virus and the cell. Our own studies are mainly focussed on the events that occur at the point of entry into the cellular site of latency and the mechanisms that trigger reactivation. In both instances, we are interested in the role of cellular signalling and, furthermore, the viral mechanisms that contribute to the successful utilisation of these cellular pathways.
Through these studies we hope to further our understanding of the complex interaction between the host and pathogen and,specifically, the intimate relationship persistent viruses have with their host. It is envisaged these studies will also provide the basis for the development of novel therapeutic strategies.
