Michael P Angarone

Associate Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and Medical Education

My primary clinical interest is in the care of individuals infected with HIV and the complications of HIV infection, including oppurtunistic infections, cancers and metabolic disease. I also specialize in the care of infections seen in recipients of solid organ and stem cell transplants and the evaluation of persons prior to transplantation. Other specific interests that I have are sexually transmitted infections and fungal infections.

Valentina Stosor

Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) and Surgery (Organ Transplantation)

Dr. Stosor is engaged in the clinical care of immunocompromised patients, including organ cell transplant recipients and those with HIV/HCV co-infection. My clinical research interests include: 1. HIV and organ transplantation, 2. HIV and HCV co-infection, 3. infectious diseases outcomes after organ transplantation, and 4. infectious diseases outcomes in mechanical circulatory support recipients.

HIV infection, Sexually-transmitted diseases

Alan R Hauser

Professor of Microbiology-Immunology and Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

Our laboratory investigates the pathogenesis of the multidrug resistant gram-negative bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii, and Klebsiella pneumonia. We focus on virulence factors such as the type III secretion, an apparatus that injects toxins directly into host cells. Other interests are the use of genomic approaches for the identification of novel virulence determinants and the development of novel translational approaches to treat bacterial infections. Our studies utilize a broad range of techniques, including molecular and cellular assays as well as animal models and e...

Richard T D'Aquila

Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

Study of HIV persistence aims to develop a functional cure. This includes discovery of approaches to modulate cell proteins such as APOBEC3s, and translation to proof-of-concept clinical trials.

Ramon Lorenzo Redondo

Research Assistant Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

My work focuses on viral evolution and the interaction between viruses and the host during infection. My main interests are RNA viruses, specially HIV-1, evolutionary biology, and genomics. The ultimate goal of my research is to understand the virus-host system and its evolutionary properties in order to develop the best treatments and prevention strategies for human viral infections.

Steven Wolinsky

Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

Eun-Young Kim

Research Associate Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases)

My research focuses on molecular evolutionary mechanisms of HIV/SIV/influenza in host defense, antiretroviral drug resistance and genetic variation in HIV, HIV susceptibility to HIV infection and disease progression, and how host genetics and immunity affects HIV/influenza infection and dynamics. Research includes next generation sequencing of HIV and host genes and transcriptome to pursue a detailed genetic interrogation of host and virus interactions and host genes that regulate HIV or influenza infection.
