Andrew Janowski, MD

Assistant Professor, Pediatrics

The Janowski lab focuses on the characterization of novel viruses in order to understand the mechanisms by which they cause disease in humans. We are currently studying the role of astrovirus VA1 in causing encephalitis and other diseases in humans. We are utilizing a brain organoid model, murine model, and a reverse genetics system to comprehensively dissect the mechanisms of astrovirus infection.
