Mac is interested in studying various aspects of viral entry and cellular trafficking. They are currently focusing on the role that cellular and viral manipulations play in the normal trafficking of Human Papillomavirus (HPV). When normal trafficking is disrupted and HPV is unable to reach the nucleus and replicate, the virus is sent to other cellular compartments or degraded. Mac is interested in where the virus accumulates during these various conditions and the underlying mechanisms behind that accumulation. Outside of their interests in science, Mac enjoys attending concerts.
