How quickly a person develops AIDS after HIV infection varies widely (1-31 years). The majority of this variation remains unexplained and previous publications by us and others indicate that the rate of disease progression is determined during the earliest stages of infection, the so-called acute HIV infection. My research profile is highly translational in using state-of-the-art bioinformatics and phylogenetics to simultaneously associate clinical, immunological and viral evolutionary data from acute HIV infection to increase our understanding of how host responses and viral escape mechanisms regulate HIV disease progression. A better understanding of the determinants of HIV disease progression will open up new avenues for future treatment and prevention strategies.
