Biographical Info

Dr. Rowley’s research interests are centered on the complex interactions that occur between a virus and it’s host. The Rowley laboratory aims to better understand how viruses hijack host proteins and how antiviral host proteins thwart virus replication. The laboratory uses both mammalian cell culture and the model eukaryote Saccharomyces cerevisiae to understand how viral antagonism has shaped the evolution and function of host proteins. Dr. Rowley is currently investigating the mechanistic details of viral nuclear entry via the nuclear pore complex in primates, and how RNA metabolism has evolved as a potent antiviral defense mechanism within Saccharomyces yeasts.

Dr. Rowley is a co-leader of the MoVIES working group.
