9th Annual David Derse Memorial Lecture and Award: Stephen P. Goff

Banner of Ninth Annual David Derse Memorial Lecture and Award

The 9th Annual David Derse Memorial Lecture and Award presentation was held virtually on November 10, 2020.  This annual event honors the outstanding research accomplishments of David Derse, Ph.D., Principal Investigator and Head of the Retrovirus Gene Expression Section in the HIV DRP.  During his 25 years at the National Cancer Institute, Dr. Derse investigated the molecular mechanisms of retrovirus infection and replication, concentrating most recently on the human viruses HIV-1 and HTLV-1.  In 2007, he and his research team discovered how HTLV-1 evades the body's natural defenses to fight off infection, a finding that may eventually lead to improved antiviral therapies and new strategies for preventing some types of cancer.

The HIV DRP sponsors the Annual David Derse Memorial Lecture and Award, with support from Hye Kyung Chung-Derse and the National Cancer Institute, to foster the scientific discourse and exchange of innovative ideas that Dr. Derse was well known for promoting throughout his scientific career.

Stephen P. Goff, Ph.D. (Higgins Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics at Columbia University Medical Center and Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator) delivered the ninth lecture in this series.  The title of his presentation was “Silencing of Retroviral DNAs.”

The archived videocast of this event will be available on the NIH Videocast website at videocast.nih.gov/watch=40067 after November 10.
