She then returned to Emory for further specialization in Pediatric Infectious Diseases. Her research primarily focuses on finding a cure for HIV, and her lab is dedicated to identifying cellular and anatomic HIV/SIV reservoirs that present the biggest obstacle to an HIV cure. They use nonhuman primate models to assess the sources of viral persistence more comprehensively and to test novel cure-directed interventions.
