In This Section
Dr. Bergelson's research focuses on the interaction of viruses with their cellular receptors. His lab identified receptors for echoviruses, coxsackieviruses, and adenoviruses, and studied their structure, physiologic function, and role in virus infection and pathogenesis in animals.
He is particularly interested in the cell biology of virus entry into cells, and receptor-induced signals required for specific events in the entry process.
