Meir Shamay, PhD

Bar-Ilan University

Dr. Jerry Gross Memorial Project Grant

Dr. Shamay studies viruses associated with human cancers: Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus, linked to pleural effusion lymphoma and Castleman disease; and Epstein-Barr virus, linked to Hodgkin lymphoma, Burkitt lymphoma, and nasopharyngeal carcinoma. His lab developed a novel way to identify cellular proteins that interact with and recruit other proteins necessary for infection. The team will screen for drugs that disrupt this interaction for use in treatment of virus-associated cancers.
