Our lab studies various herpesviruses but the major focus of our research is on the study of cytomegalovirus. Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV or Human herpesvirus 5) is a large DNA virus (>235 kb) that belongs to the Betaherpesvirinae genus of the Herpesviridae family. Primary HCMV infection in immunocompetent individuals is usually benign but establishes a lifelong latent state.
