Dr. Ritesh Tandon laboratory studies viral and cellular factors that are critical for human cytomegalovirus replication and also interested in exploring targets for small molecules/vaccines against human and animal viruses. The research in Tandon laboratory currently focuses on three different aspects of human cytomegalovirus (CMV) maturation:

  • Role of tegument proteins in maintaining capsid stability during virus maturation.
  • Mechanisms of virus trafficking in the cell and the role of host factors in virus maturation
  • Structural changes in virus capsids during maturation.
