Her research integrates computational and experimental analyses of the host-virus interactome. Combining high-resolution experimental data analysis (e.g. microarrays) with a systems biology approach can elucidate general mechanisms governing host-virus interaction. Integrating the two disciplines will provide information about universally applicable patterns of viral infection, while simultaneously examining the consequences of specific host-pathogen interactions.
Sara was selected as one of the 2011 fellows in the prestigious and highly competitive NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program which provides funding for Sara’s research through 2014.
