Brief description Our robust ability to mount an immune response and clear infections is tempered by the possibility of promoting autoimmunity. Several host genes regulate immunity. Viruses like HIV have exploited these to abrogate antiviral immunity. This project attempts to define host factors that promote chronic infection. This will be extremely valuable in understanding the vulnerabilities of our immune system and provide an insight into how we can treat chronic infections.
