      Collapse Overview
      Dr. Deborah Spector is a Professor in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine and the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. She received her PhD from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and was a Helen Hay Whitney Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at University of California San Francisco. Her research focuses on herpesvirus pathogenesis and the molecular mechanisms used by these viruses to control their gene expression and subvert the cell's signaling and regulatory pathways. A primary area of study involves human cytomegalovirus (HCMV), which is the major viral cause of birth defects, a serious problem in immunocompromised individuals, and a risk factor in atherosclerosis. Specifically her lab is investigating the role of HCMV in atherosclerosis and the effects of HCMV infection on the neural lineage specification and maturation of stem and progenitor cells. Her lab has also developed a novel strategy for vaccines against viruses that persist and establish latency, and has shown their protective efficacy in animal models of cytomegalovirus infection and genital herpes simplex virus infection.

      In addition to her research, Dr. Spector chairs the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program and directs the CTRI Translational Research Alliance. She is responsible for all aspects of the Translational Research Alliance, including fostering collaboration with regional basic science researchers, strengthening and developing new educational programs that target basic researchers, coordinating joint faculty appointments, and communicating pilot project and core service information to partner scientists.
