Dr Sandra Quackenbush, virologist in MIP, works in biosafety hood

 Dr Sandra Quackenbush works in a biosafety hood. Her laboratory's research focuses on viral pathogenesis, particularly viral-induced oncogenesis.

The Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology is recognized nationally and internationally for its outstanding virology research programs. An interactive group of researchers study viruses that infect domestic and wild animals (feline leukemia virus, feline immunodeficiency virus, walleye dermal sarcoma virus, bovine viral diarrhea virus, rabies virus, avian influenza virus, hantavirus), humans (human immunodeficiency virus), and viruses vectored by mosquitoes (see the vector-borne infectious disease page​). Areas of research interest include: virus discovery, virus-cell interactions, viral pathogenesis, oncogenesis, transcription and post-transcriptional regulation immune response to infection, vaccine development, and gene therapy.
