The Frenkel Lab’s research focuses on several areas:
- Understanding the mechanisms that allow HIV to persist during antiretroviral therapy (ART). Our goal is to better enable interventions to cure HIV infection.
- Developing a practical, affordable test – called a point mutation assay – for detecting drug-resistant HIV
- Providing insights into reservoirs of drug-resistant HIV
- Pathogenesis of HIV disease. Specifically, we investigate why HIV-infected individuals experience morbidities and die at younger ages even despite ART.
