John A. Blaho, Ph.D., has focused his research on the herpes simplex virus (HSV), with the goal of understanding the molecular events involved in the regulation of the replication of this human virus and also the mechanisms by which the virus causes cell death. Herpes simplex viruses are neurotropic viruses that cause a variety of infections, remain latent in the neurons of their host for life, and can be reactivated at any time to cause lesions at or near the initial site of infection.
