Our laboratory examines the molecular biology of human tumor viruses including Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) and Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCV) that we discovered. Research Summary Recent work has focused on establishing whether MCV causes Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) and to identify novel diagnostic and therapeutic options for MCV-related MCC.
