Viruses can contribute to the development of several human cancers and constitute 15–30% of human cancers with geographic variation. Approximately 200,000 new cancer cases every year are associated with Epstein–Barr virus (EBV). The current interests are the host-herpesvirus interactions, and our research will be a blend of virology, molecular and cellular biology, immunology, and pathology.
