2014 COS Research Conference Keynote Speaker
HIV-1: Subversive Strategies in Transmission and Pathogenesis
by Dr. James E.K. Hildreth
James E.K. Hildreth, M.D., Ph.D.
Dr. Hildreth's research is focused on understanding mechanisms by which HIV subverts host pathways and molecules during its replication cycle. His laboratory is particularly interested in the role of cholesterol and cholesterol homeostatic pathways in virus entry, virus release, and viral gene transcription. Another major area of interest is the impact of viral co-infections on HIV’s tropism and replication.
