The Mullins lab uses the techniques of molecular, computational and virus biology to provide basic insights into the HIV-human host relationship. They use a variety of techniques to understand the implications of HIV’s extraordinary genetic diversity for the pathogenesis of AIDS, with the intention of applying this information to the development of more effective therapies and vaccines. projects include defining HIV reservoirs during therapy, assessing the impact of vaccines upon virus infection and during infection, and defining signals of acute onset disease progression.
