Popkin Research Lab

Welcome to the Popkin Lab at Case Western Reserve University

We address fundamental questions in two related fields: viral pathogenesis and immunology. We apply this towards disease models (e.g. skin disease).

Field(s) of Research: Immunology, Virology

Disease Focus: AIDS/HIV, Skin Cancer

We are currently recruiting motivated postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduates. Our research combines immunology, virology, and molecular biology to test approaches targeting HIV and other chronic viral infections.  Experience in one or more of these approaches would be beneficial; however, we will consider candidates from a variety of backgrounds, provided they make a compelling case for contributing to the objectives and goals of the lab.

Mechanisms of viral persistence
We use mouse genetics to identify host requirements for persistent viral infection. Once identified, these host factors represent ideal targets to better understand and thus treat persistent viral infections.
Keywords:  lcmv, immunology, APCs, dendritic cells, persistent infection
