Overview

I'm a Post-Doc in Prof. Eddie Wang's lab, as part of the 'Cytomegalovirus and Adenovirus' group, within the Divison of Infection and Immunity. I'm interested in understanding the viral immune evasion strategies employed by human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) to evade its host. Specifically, how the virus manipulates NK- and T-cell function to dampen immune activation. My publications are available under my maiden name 'Rubina' at Google Scholar.
