Lab focus: chronic infections

My laboratory focuses on understanding why some infections are not cleared from our body, but persist within cells. These are called chronic infections.

HIV, hepatitis B virus (HBV) and tuberculosis are three globally significant chronic infections. Together they cause more than five million deaths globally each year.

There is no cure for HIV or HBV. Antibiotic resistance is increasing in the bacteria causing tuberculosis. New therapies that control or cure chronic infections are urgently required.

Our research is revealing how microbes sabotage the processes that normally eradicate infections. Our goal is to discover and deliver new therapies that can promote clearance of chronic infections.
