Dr. Johnston is a physician-scientist who studies the pathogenesis of genital herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2)infection, with the ultimate goal of identifying interventions that will improve genital health. Of specific interest is the mechanism by which HSV-2 reactivation increases the risk of genital co-infections, such as HIV and bacterial vaginosis. Dr. Johnston will discuss her ongoing study exploring how HSV-2 influences the vaginal microbiome in the female genital tract.
