Research technician I
Matthew Wood, PhD
I have always been interested in the complex interplay between microorganisms and their host species. I also understand that with the knowledge I have gained comes the potential to help those afflicted by infectious diseases that prevent people from living the healthy lives they are entitled to. This is what brought me to the Sodora Lab. At the Center for Global Infectious Disease Research, I have the opportunity to use my previous experience in HIV biology and immunology to work on large, collaborative research projects with more direct clinical impact. While my energy is mainly devoted to host-pathogen interactions, I have a very diverse set of interests, and I always keep time open for coffee and conversation.
