Academic Background

πŸ”¬ With over 25 years of dedicated research experience, I have established a robust track record of accomplishments in the fields of immunology, molecular biology, and virology, focusing particularly on HIV, HCV, and HBV-related liver diseases. My research endeavors have spanned fundamental investigations to translational studies, aimed at unraveling the intricate mechanisms underlying these complex viral infections. Within the realm of HCV, HBV, and HIV, my contributions have been multifaceted. Firstly, I have delved into elucidating the intricate viral-host interactions of HCV, shedding light on the mechanisms driving infection and pathogenesis. Additionally, my work has advanced pathogenetic studies in coinfections such as HCV-HIV and HBV-HIV, along with investigating the implications of HIV on liver disease progression. One notable area of focus has been the identification of key regulators governing the replication processes of HCV and HBV.
