Research Summary

My group is exploring HIV tropism for certain cell types, including T cell subsets and macrophages. Through use of clinically derived viruses we aim to better understand transmission and establishment of viral latent reservoirs. The potential benefits include informing vaccine design as well as curative strategies.

We also study HIV drug resistance both on a population level through collaborations with WHO, with an element of basic research into protease inhibitor resistance.  The aim is to better inform antiretroviral drug strategies.
