Dr. Daphne Avgousti studies how viruses hijack the DNA packaging of the cells they infect. She works with adenovirus, a common cold virus, to address fundamental questions about how special proteins work to neatly compress DNA to fit inside cells or viruses. Specifically, she works on how viruses use these DNA-packaging proteins, also known as chromatin proteins, to manipulate the host to their own ends.
