Matt Weitzman, presently an Associate Professor at the Salk
Institute, will move to Children's Hospital and Penn this

and their host cells, and is well known for his work on the
interactions between viruses and the DNA repair pathways
of the host cells as well as the study and development of
novel gene therapy vectors. Some of his recent papers are
