 DESCRIPTION OF RESEARCH
  The Telesnitsky lab studies the interplay of cellular RNA trafficking and retroviral replication steps, as well as mechanisms of HIV-1 and other retroviruses' genetic variation. We are pioneers in the study of host noncoding RNAs in retroviral biology: performing both work that addresses these RNAs' natural roles in retroviral biology and studies aimed at exploiting viral interactions with these RNAs as the bases of novel antiviral drugs and of therapeutic RNA delivery.
