To date, approximately 250 herpesviruses have been identified,affecting most animal species. These viruses are associated with a variety of diseases such as encephalitis, malignancy and mucocutaneous diseases in human and animals. The objective of our research is to understand the mechanisms by which herpesviruses replicate in cells and manifest diseases in their hosts. Our goal is to apply our fundamental findings for the development of anti-herpetic drugs and vaccines for the control of these viral infections. Please refer to our homepage for more detail.
