Examination of Virus-Host Interactions at Molecular, Cellular, and Animal Levels to Better Understand HIV Immunopathogenesis and the Development of Antiviral Resistance
The Model Development Section (MDS) seeks to further basic science understanding of HIV-1 replication, cell biology, and immunology as well as translate basic research findings to develop model systems that more faithfully mimic human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in vivo.
Current projects in the MDS include:
(1) Understanding how HIV-1 exploits cell biological mechanisms to further virus replication.
(2) Identification of innate intracellular mechanisms that counteract HIV-1 replication.
(3) The development of improved nonhuman primate models to study HIV-1 pathogenesis and persistence.
Please visit the MDS publications page to see our progress in these various research areas.
Visiting scientists, graduate students, or postdoctoral candidates interested in the possibility of performing research studies in the MDS should contact Dr. Vineet KewalRamani (firstname.lastname@example.org). Information for other postdoctoral positions in the HIV DRP can also be found on the Recruitment web page.
