Title: "RNA-Based Mechanisms of Antiviral and Antitumor Immunity"

John Karijolich, PhD

Associate Professor
Department of Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology

Vanderbilt University Medical Center

Faculty Host: Eva Gottwein, PhD


My laboratory’s research program is currently focused on determining how viral infection intersects with host gene expression machineries. This includes investigating how gene regulatory processes serve as cell-intrinsic barriers to infection as well as how viruses regulate gene expression programs. We primarily study these events using the human oncogenic gammaherpesvirus Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV), which is a prominent cause of AIDS-associated cancers.
