HIV-1 Latency, Reservoirs, and Residual Viremia during ART

Research Interests

Dr. Sahu’s laboratory focuses on understanding the mechanisms of how HIV goes into latency in CD4+ T- cells in infected individuals, how infected T cells undergo clonal expansion, and how the virus persistently copies itself in the body, even in the face of suppressive antiretroviral therapy. Current laboratory studies attempt to develop a primary T-cell model of HIV reservoir cell expansion and find ways to target persistent reservoirs for elimination.
