The Epi-Omic’s of KSHV Gene Regulation

Speaker: John Karilojich, PhD, Associate Professor

Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Department of Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology                      


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. At this seminar I will discuss our current findings pertaining to how epigenomic and epitranscriptomic marks influence the KSHV lifecycle.

Host: Eva Gottwein, PhD, Associate Professor, Dept. of Microbiology-Immunology
