Music, cooking, playing sports I used to be better at in high school (and thereby coming to terms with my inevitable physical decline), fantasy football, watching Aaron Sorkin and Jeff Daniels eviscerate the tea party
I study the mechanisms by which Filoviruses evade the host immune response (specifically the role of the surface glycoprotein in immune evasion) and the implications thereof to vaccine design.
