Research Interest
My research is focused on the persistent reservoir that precludes HIV-1- infected patients on antiretroviral therapy from acheiving cure. In particular I focus on the development of molecular-based assays to characterize the reservoir and assess clinical strategies aimed at perturbing or eliminating this reservoir.
