Gupta Lab Home
The Gupta lab has teams in both London and at the Africa Health Research Institute in Durban South Africa. Our work focuses on two areas:
- Studying HIV drug resistance to protease / integrase inhibitors and implications for global scale up of antiretroviral therapy.
- Dissecting the biology of macrophage-virus interactions given myeloid cells are parasitised by HIV and are a difficult-to-treat reservoir.
