Kathleen Collins, M.D., Ph.D.

Internal MedicineInfectious Diseases, Microbiology and Immunology
Research Interests

My laboratory is interested in understanding the factors that allow HIV to thwart the immune system. A clear understanding of the means by which the virus accomplishes this would allow the development of novel antiviral therapies.

John Moran, Ph.D.

Research Interests

Our research focuses on a class of human ‘jumping genes’ known as Long Interspersed Element-1 sequences (LINE-1s). LINE-1s comprise ~17% of human DNA. Our long-term goal is to gain a better understanding about how LINE-1 jumping leads to human disease and how this process has influenced the evolution of our genome.

Zhaohui Xu, Ph.D.

Research Interests

Xu lab is interested in understanding the structural basis of molecular interactions that govern the regulation of protein folding and protein trafficking inside the cell under both physiological and pathological conditions.
