Research Interest:

Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) can potently suppress human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) replication and prevent progression to AIDS. However; HAART does not completely eliminate HIV from the body. Instead; HIV persists in latently infected CD4 + Tcells and various cryptic cellular reservoirs. Because latency represents a barrier to curing HIV-1 infection
