Background

Our group employs cell biology, biochemical and structural-biophysical techniques to investigate biomolecular interactions and establish their functional roles. Specifically, we are studying host-viral interactions to understand how viral molecules hijack our cellular machinery to allow viral replication. We are also investigating structure-function relationships of focal adhesion proteins (e.g. Zyxin and WTIP) and study their role in cancer.
