My research interests focus on identifying the factors in these patients that predispose them to developing opportunistic viral infections after cancer treatment. I am also interested in studying the interactions between host, bacteria, virus, and gut microbiota. I am currently involved in various research projects including rapid identification of adenovirus types, investigation of risk factors for adenovirus infections, and gut microbiota in stem cell transplant recipients.
