Interactions between host genetics, cellular immunity, and viral pathogenesis.
My laboratory studies the interplay between viral pathogenesis and host immunity. We currently have three primary research interests. First, we study variation in genes involved in immunity using state-of-the-art genome sequencing. Second, we study how viruses like HIV and Zika virus cause disease. Third, we are using viral genome sequencing to inform and improve public health in the COVID-19 pandemic.
