CFID and IGHID co-sponsor a weekly conference series featuring distinguished clinicians and scientists from UNC, local universities and other national and international institutions. The topics are varied and appeal to not only infectious disease specialists, but also professionals in epidemiology, public health, microbiology, biostatistics and other global health-related disciplines.
Dr. Swanstrom is the principal investigator of Swanstrom Lab. The Swanstrom laboratory is interested in several areas of HIV-1 research. There are three lines of research that cover most of the ongoing work in the laboratory: i) evolution of HIV-1 as the result of virus-host interactions; ii) the nature of drug resistance to HIV-1 protease inhibitors; and iii) in a collaborative effort with the Johnston laboratory, development of an HIV-1 vaccine.
