I’ve been interested in cancer research since my student days. I was studying double minute chromosomes (nowadays called ecDNA, extrachromosomal DNA) abroad, and I got interested in EBV. EBV and double minutes share common characteristics as episomes. Since then, I’ve been into the virus for over 20 years.
