Herpesviruses

Timothy M. Rose, PhD

Dr. Rose's research interests lie in the identification and characterization of DNA herpes viruses implicated in cellular transformation and tumor induction, and in the study of host and viral proteins and cytokines that mediate these effects.

Herpes Simplex Virus

Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and HSV-2), are two members of the herpes virus family, Herpesviridae, that infect humans. Both HSV-1 (which produces most cold sores) and HSV-2 (which produces most genital herpes) are ubiquitous and contagious. 

David Koelle, MD

Herpesviruses are a family of viruses that produce a variety of complications for patients. Some of these viruses can be very dangerous for immunocompromised patients and even promote the development of cancers.
