The Arias Lab Has Moved!!! You Can Find Us at the Chan Zuckerberg BioHub in San Francisco

Our lab focuses on understanding virus-host interactions. We explore the molecular mechanisms used by viruses to control the cellular machinery involved in protein synthesis and folding, and the function of viral encoded small open reading frames. Viruses are fascinating; they are the ultimate cell hackers, and cell biology's problem solvers.
