Megan received her PhD in Microbiology and Immunology from Upstate Medical University in Syracuse. She is currently interested in the nexus between host trafficking and signaling during infection. Megan loves hiking, yoga and crossfit and was trained as an opera singer.
Jason received his Ph.D from Iowa State University. He is currently interested in understanding how viruses interpret environmental cues through cellular signaling pathways. While this is really fascinating, he is also obsessed with classical mythology.
Shu received her PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Tongji University, China. Since then, she has applied her my computational strengths to biological questions and is currently analyzing the cellular transcriptomes associated with CMV-latency. Outside the lab, she enjoys ballet, swimming, and hiking in and around Tucson.
Donna received her PhD in Microbiology and Immunology from Louisiana State University Health in Shreveport. She is currently interested in the host factors and molecular mechanisms regulating reactivation from latency. Donna likes tropical fish, hiking and cave exploring.
Mike received a B.S. in biology from the University of Maryland at College Park. For his PhD, he is studying the mechanisms by which viruses control their host cells. When not working, Mike enjoy woodworking, trying new foods, and spending time with my wife and our pets.
Sebastian received his BS in ecology and evolutionary biology from the University of Arizona. He is interested in how HCMV fine-tunes signaling pathways through differential receptor trafficking. When not “Science-ing”, Sebastian enjoys judo, writing, and pointing out that climate change is real.
