“Viral Subversion of Nuclear Pathways: Opportunities for Therapy”

Beatriz Fontoura, PhD / University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center


Our laboratory studies the cell biology of viral-host interactions. Our main focus is on the interplay between RNA viruses, such as influenza A and vesicular stomatitis viruses, and nuclear processes. We investigate interactions of virulence factors with RNA processing and nucleo-cytoplasmic trafficking, which regulate virus replication and antiviral response. Knowledge of these pathways is being used to design potential therapeutic strategies.
