Dr. Mullins's lab uses the techniques of molecular, computational and virus biology to provide basic insights into the HIV-human host relationship in an effort to assist the fight to stop the AIDS pandemic. His team uses a variety of techniques to understand the implications of HIV's extraordinary genetic diversity for the pathogenesis of AIDS, with the intention of applying this information to the development of more effective therapies and vaccines. These techniques include virology; and molecular biological and statistical analysis of nucleotide sequences.
