Research Interests

The research in our laboratory uses molecular and cell biology methods to investigate key questions at the interface of virology, pathogenesis, and the human cellular immune response to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Ongoing studies aim to understand the impact of viral immune escape mutations on HIV protein function and cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) recognition, to assess the role of HIV accessory proteins in establishment and maintenance of viral latency, and to employ new assays to identify patient-derived T cell receptors (TCR) that display enhanced ability to recognize HIV-infected cells.
