Research

Peter Vogt’s research interests focus on virology and cancer biology. Early studies of avian retroviruses outlined the cell biology of infection and defined the basic functions of the viral envelope proteins. His analysis of the Rous sarcoma viral genome led to the identification of the first oncogene, src, and to the discovery of its cellular origin. He played key roles in the discovery of several retroviral oncogenes, including myc, jun and p3k, the latter coding for a homolog of the catalytic subunit p110 alpha of PI 3-kinase. His recent work deals with the oncogenicity of p110 isoforms and with the control of protein-protein interactions in the Myc-Max network.
