Martin Rowe has a particular interest in Viral Oncology and Tumour Immunology. The consistent themes of his research since 1980 have been the role of EBV in pathogenesis of lymphoma, and the mechanisms by which this pathogen is normally carried for life as an asymptomatic infection by the vast majority of adults worldwide. Most recently, his work has included a more translational element with the aim of applying the acquired knowledge of EBV biology and pathogenesis to the design of rational therapies.

Professor Rowe has published more than 160 research papers in scientific journals as well as reviews and book chapters in the fields of virology, cancer and tumour immunology. He has received major grants from Cancer Research UK, Leukaemia Lymphoma Research, the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council. He is interested in supervising doctoral projects that relate to his research specialisms.
