Dr. Schiffer specializes in infectious diseases with particular interests in the management of HIV infected patients and other immunocompromised hosts. His current interests are in describing the quantitative and dynamical features of human pathogens and immune responses. Most of his work to-date is on the pathogenesis of HSV-2 infection but he also is interested in applying models to optimize viral eradication strategies, and in using models to capture kinetic features of the human microbiome.
