OVERVIEW

Human immunodeficiency virus type I (HIV-1) is the causative agent of AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome).

Our laboratory focuses on the characterization of molecular interactions occurring within a host cell that are critical for HIV replication. Our ultimate goal is to develop therapeutics that inhibit HIV-1 replication, with special focus on those that help to reduce, eradicate, or suppress the reservoir of latently infected cells. To that end, we are also investigating the mechanisms that regulate HIV-1 latency in CD4+T memory T cells.
