HIV Neuropathogenesis, Genetics, and Therapeutics Branch


The HIV Neuropathogenesis, Genetics, and Therapeutics Branch supports an integrated research program to understand the pathogenic mechanisms and genetic factors involved in the pathophysiology of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 induced central nervous system (CNS) dysfunction. The branch also supports research on the mechanisms of establishment and persistence of HIV-1 viral reservoir in the CNS. Furthermore, the branch supports the development of novel therapeutic strategies to mitigate the CNS complications of HIV-1 and eradication of HIV-1 from the CNS/myeloid reservoirs.
