Research

Research Summary: 

Research in the Katze laboratory is focused on the use of systems biology approaches, including genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and computational modeling, to define and model virus-host interactions and the varied strategies used by viruses to evade cellular defense mechanisms. We study a wide range of viral pathogens, including hepatitis C, influenza, Ebola, West Nile, SARS-coronavirus, herpes simplex virus, and human and simian immunodeficiency viruses. We are happy to talk with highly motivated undergraduates who are interested in a career in research. Although some familiarity with basic laboratory skills is helpful, no specific skills or experience are required. Students are expected to commit to a minimum of 20 hours per week in the laboratory.
