Printed Thesis Information:


In this essay, which is to be read in conjunction with papers [1-9] included as the Appendix to this thesis, I aim to present the necessary background on the biology of Varicella-Zoster Virus (VZV), the clinical manifestations of VZV, and an up-to-date picture of the available knowledge on VZV latency. I situate the work done in Prof P. G. E. Kennedy's laboratory in the current literature and describe my contribution to that work. In the last chapter I put forward a model of latency that is consistent with many experimental findings and suggest some possible directions for future research.
