Working to understand Kaposi’s Sarcoma-associated herpesvirus in the context of viral oncogenesis.


The Eva Gottwein Laboratory

Our main areas of investigation are mechanisms of KSHV-associated B cell transformation, mechanisms of KSHV-associated endothelial cell deregulation, the identification of drug targets for novel therapeutic strategies to treat KSHV-associated cancers, and targets and functions of KSHV-encoded microRNAs.

The Latest from the Lab

New paper by Manzano and Günther et al., mBio

Our new paper on KSHV-mediated deregulation of IRF4 and cellular superenhancers is out in mBio. This was a great collaboration with Thomas Günther and Adam Grundhoff from the Heinrich Pette institute in Hamburg.
