Systems Virology Meets Engineering

We use quantitative approaches to study how viruses "hijack" cells and how cells respond to viral infection. We also build new systems to quantitatively measure these cellular responses and hijack (control) cells synthetically.

Virus-Host Interactions

We study how viruses hijack cellular processes through virus-host protein interactions, and how this contributes to virus replication and pathogenesis

Biomolecular Engineering and Synthetic Biology

Viruses hijack cellular pathways so they can replicate. We use synthetic biology and protein engineering to create new tools for biotechnology and biomedical applications, with a focus on viruses


Welcome to the Shah Lab! We work at the intersection of Chemical Engineering and Microbiology. We develop and apply quantitative systems biology tools to study virus-host interactions.
