Rick Pyles, PhD

Dr. Pyles' primary area of research examines immune modulation as an enhancement for vaccine efficacy and antiviral therapies. In these studies his lab is investigating immunostimulatory, CpG motif-containing oligonucleotides. A second area of research examines neuronal and host genetic factors that contribute to HSV pathology. His third research area utilizes recombinant viruses that carry alterations in key viral proteins to study the contribution of viral factors to pathogenesis including reporter viruses, expressing fluorescent proteins, with intact genetic compliments to better understand lytic and latent phases of the viral infection.
