  We study issues at the interface between virology and immunology, working from the hypothesis that viruses manipulate the immune response using immunoevasive gene products as the immune response attempts to eradicate the virus. The resulting delicate balance determines the fate of both virus and host, and contributes to both acute and chronic disease. To understand the basis of human diseases of unknown etiology we have an active pathogen discovery program that has identified a number of novel viruses.
