The focus of Dr. Coombs' research activity is on the pathogenesis of HIV-1 and the quantification of viral load in the setting of therapeutic clinical trials involving both adult and pediatric HIV-1 infected subjects.
Of particular interest is validation of HIV-1 DNA and unintegrated episomal 2-LTR viral DNA as markers of infectivity when viral RNA levels are suppressed in the plasma with effective antiretroviral therapy.
