JCCC Research Seminar featuring Oliver Fregoso

Understanding the DNA damage response in HIV replication and cure

Presented by
Oliver Fregoso, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor
Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics

Dr. Oliver Fregoso’s lab studies how the lifecycle of HIV and related viruses are regulated by host pathways and host proteins. He is particularly interested in the DNA damage response, which is a highly conserved signaling pathway required for maintenance of genomic integrity. His lab has uncovered DNA damage response proteins and DNA damage response pathways that control HIV-1 infectivity. They are currently developing new functional and computational tools to understand how the DNA damage response regulates viral replication in primary immune cells.
