Microbial Pathogenesis

IHV was founded, in part, on an exceptional history of HIV research, a strength that continues to this day. Over the last nearly two decades, pathogenesis research in the Division of Infectious Agents and Cancer has expanded to encompass a variety of microbes, including:

  • Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria
  • Mycoplasma
  • Histoplasma
  • HTLV-1
  • respiratory viruses
  • hepatitis viruses
  • hemorrhagic fever viruses

Clinical samples and animal models, as well as genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic profiling are used to characterize diseased and healthy states.
