My lab is interested in RNA virus pathogenesis and immunity, with an emphasis on HIV. We are particularly interested in understanding how HIV and RNA viruses evolve to avoid recognition by the immune system and how the genetics of the immune system leads to differences in immune responses to viruses. We probe these interactions between viruses and the immune system in vitro, in non-human primates, and in people in collaboration with infectious disease clinicians.
