HIV persists in the body despite the application of highly potent therapies that reduce it to undetectable levels in the blood. Students will join an effort designed to identify the tissues in which these residual virus “reservoirs” are found. Students will join a vibrant laboratory focused on multiple basic research questions critical to current objectives in AIDS research. Each student will learn careful molecular biologic technologies and bioinformatics approaches to DNA sequence analysis. We prefer students to join in their Sophomore year, commit ~10 hrs/week during the academic year, and if all goes well, stay with us throughout their undergraduate careers.
