Our lab focuses on the molecular biology of host-pathogen interactions. We investigate how Kaposi's Sarcoma Herpesvirus (KSHV) influences metabolism, innate immunity, cell localization and trafficking, and host-viral protein interactions by looking at a lytic gene of KSHV known as the viral G Protein-Coupled Receptor (vGPCR). 

Our research is designed to inspire graduate and undergraduate student researchers interested in exploring human disease at the molecular level.

Research at Sanchez Lab involves constant analysis of the hypotheses we explore. Since 2000, we have been driven by this mission of discovery. Read on to find out more about our latest work.
