We are part of the College of Engineering and the College of Biological Sciences. We are located in 247 Briggs Hall.
The Shah Lab opened in 2017. Interested in applying? Check out our contact page for more information!
The Shah Lab uses viruses and engineering principles to perturb and control biological networks. We are interested in exploring two major questions:
- How do flaviviruses hijack host machinery to facilitate their own replication?
- Can we control these biological networks for biomedical and biotechnology applications?
We use complementary techniques of global proteomics, genetics, high-throughput sequencing, microscopy and synthetic biology to tackle these questions.
January 2019: Marine and Priya publish a review on the systems biology of arbovirus-vector interactions in Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology!
December 2018: Priya’s postdoc work on flavivirus-host protein interactions is published in Cell!
November 2018: Welcome to postdocs Rob Stott (@robertjaystott) and Efra Rivera-Serrano (@nakedcapsid), and rotation students Adam Fishburn and Osman Sharifi
October 2018: Big changes in the lab. Fancy new microscope and biosafety cabinet arrive.
September 2018: Welcome to rotation students Tyler Laird and Nick DeCuzzi!
