Her lab aims to identify cellular and anatomic HIV/SIV reservoirs that represent the key obstacle(s) to an HIV cure, using nonhuman primate models to more completely assess the sources of viral persistence and test novel cure-directed interventions. Her laboratory is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR).
