Director: James Bremer, PhD
Dr. Bremer is currently a tenured Professor in the Department of Immunology/Microbiology at RUMC. In addition, he holds the positions of Director of the Clinical Retrovirology Research Laboratory (CRRL) and Director of the Virology Quality Assurance (VQA) Program for NIH/NIAID/DAIDS which has been housed at RUMC since 1995. His laboratory has extensive experience in the techniques of clinical virology.
Co-Director: Michael Caffrey, PhD
|Dr. Caffrey is currently a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics at UIC. His research interests are focused on the structure and function properties of HIV and AIDS-related proteins. He has expertise in wide variety of experimental techniques that are important for HIV/AIDS research including: molecular biology, cell biology, virology, protein purification, protein characterization, drug discovery, and structural biology.|
