Dr. Lemon’s laboratory is interested in the innate immune responses to RNA viruses, and how these viruses have evolved to escape these host defenses. Our research focuses on the molecular pathogenesis of hepatitis C virus (HCV) – related liver diseases, including in particular HCV-associated hepatocellular carcinoma, and the development of effective therapies for hepatitis C.
