Group Leader, Infectious Disease

A comprehensive understanding of the functional requirements of diverse viral replication/transcription complexes will provide key information for the development of safe and effective direct-acting antivirals, as well as potential novel therapeutics aimed at host factors that influence viral replication/transcription complex activity. Amy Kistler’s Infectious Disease group at CZ Biohub is merging viral genomics, synthetic biology, molecular virology, proteomics, compound screening, and genome-wide CRISPR screening approaches to study diverse known and emerging human viruses. Our current efforts are focused on building a robust capacity to systematically identify and functionally characterize virus-encoded and host-encoded factors associated with viral transcription and replication complexes of diverse known and emerging human viral pathogens.
