Beth Levine, MD, Professor

Research Interests: Our laboratory uses molecular and genetic approaches in mice and model organisms to study the role of specific host genes and cell biology pathways involved in cancer, infectious diseases, and development. The primary focus of our studies is on the cellular pathway of autophagy.

Faculty

Roger Bedimo, MD

Research Interests: Analysis of the trends of Non-AIDS-defining malignancies patients

Simon Daefler, MD, PhD, Asst. Prof.

Research Interests: Our laboratory is interested in the mechanism of how Gram negative bacteria employ complex machineries to force-feed macromolecules into their eukaryotic host cell and how this then determines the interaction between bacterium and host. Our model system is Salmonella typhimurium.

Clark R. Gregg, MD, Assoc. Prof.

Research Interests: Gastrointestinal infections, Molecular Epidemiology, Mycotic Infections, Drug Interactions, Formulary management

R. Doug Hardy, MD, Asst. Prof.

Research Interests: Respiratory tract Immunology Asthma, M. Pneumoniae infection, Community-acquired MRSA, Adolescent/Young Adult HIV

Research Interests: Infection Control, Molecular Epidemiology, Clinical Infectious Diseases

Mamta Jain, MD, Asst. Prof.

Research Interests: HIV/HCV Co-Infection, HIV/HBV Co-Infection, HIV Related Mortality

Philip Keiser, MD, Assoc. Prof.

Research Interests: Anti-retroviral therapy of HIV Infection, Acute HIV Seroconversion Illness, Outcomes and Economic Impact of HIV Therapy

James P. Luby, MD, Prof.

Research Interests: Clinical virology, Epidemiology in Infectious Diseases

David Margolis, MD

Research Interests: The overall goal of our laboratory is to obtain new insights into the host-virus interaction, particularly in HIV infection, and translate discoveries in molecular biology and virology to the clinic to aid in the treatment of chronic viral diseases.

Robert S. Munford, MD, Prof.

Research Interests: Our research goal is to understand how animals detoxify the LPS that the body encounters, either in this low-level, frequent way, or when gram-negative bacteria manage to avoid host defenses and cause clinically symptomatic infections. In particular, we focus on a unique host enzyme, acyloxyacyl hydrolase(AOAH), that detoxifies LPS by selectively removing two of its six fatty acyl chains. The enzyme is produced by hematopoietic progenitor cells, immature dendritic cells, macrophages, neurtophils and renal proximal tumule cells.
