We are currently focusing on the pathogenesis of HIV infection with particular emphasis on the mechanisms for controlling HIV-1 at low levels in vivo. We are devoting considerable effort toward identifying HIV-1 strains which are defective or attenuated, and human genes that protect against and/or control HIV-1 infection. We also have interest in defining the role of CD14+ monocytes in HIV-1 transmission as well as during the very early course of HIV-1 infection. The above studies should assist in developing new therapeutic strategies and HIV-1 vaccine or strategies to enhance vaccine efficacy. We are also developing new technologies and assays for detection of viral infections including HIV-1.
