Microbiology-Immunology Seminar Series

Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) is an oncogenic human herpesvirus that is linked to three different cancers in the human population. Like other herpesviruses, KSHV is able to establish life long latency in the human host with periodic bouts of reactivation and lytic replication. The ability of KSHV to drive oncogenesis is intimately linked with its ability to evade host immunity. My talk will focus on how KSHV evades host innate immune signaling pathways
and promotes cell proliferation.
