Title: Host Manipulation by Epstein-Barr Virus

Speaker: Lori Frappier, PhD, Professor and Graduate Coordinator, Department of Molecular Genetics, University of Toronto


Epstein Barr virus (EBV) infects most people and is a causative agent in some times of cancer and multiple sclerosis. It’s lytic infectious cycle involves the expression of ~70 EBV proteins, many of which are poorly characterized but likely to have roles in manipulating cellular processes to facilitate efficient infection. My lab uses proteomics approaches to uncover cellular functions of EBV proteins. New roles that we discovered for EBV proteins in disabling cellular antiviral proteins and miRNA function will be discussed. 

Host: Richard Longnecker, PhD, Professor, Department of Mirobiology-Immunology
