Our laboratory specializes in mass spectrometry-based proteomics and systems biology to study host immunity, the microbiome, and interactions in infectious diseases. A central focus of our research has been to study host and microbial factors at mucosal surfaces that underlie of the acquisition and pathogenesis of HIV. The goal is to apply this knowledge to develop novel preventative, diagnostic, and therapeutic strategies. Our program works in close collaboration and partnership with many domestic and international institutions and clinical cohorts from Africa, United States, Sweden, and Canada
