Boris-Lawrie_KathleenGenetic, proteomic, biochemical and biophysical experiments are being used to dissect how retroviruses affect the gene expression of their human or animal host. Dr. Boris-Lawrie's analysis of fundamental issues of retrovirus gene expression provides a window into how cells control their own gene expression. The outcome is new fundamental information on how cells fine-tune diverse biochemical reactions to sustain health or succumb to disease. Dr. Boris-Lawrie's insights are also useful for manipulating the malleable retrovirus genome to produce vectors to treat cancer and prevent pathogenic virus infection.
