  • My research focuses on the definition on the role of Cytomegalovirus in human
    malignancies and specifically in brain tumors.
    I am particularly interesting in the validation of antiviral therapy in
    patients with Glioblastoma and in the understanding of the role of this virus
    as cancer promoting agent.
