Funded by the Wellcome Trust Four Year Studentship in Genomic Medicine, Dan is working in Sarah Rowland-Jones laboratory focusing his research on cohorts of vertically infected HIV positive adolescents from Harare, Zimbabwe.
The majority of Dan's work is focused on studying the prevalence and patterns of microbial translocation in the Zimbabwe cohorts. Alongside this work, Dan is focusing on defining levels of HLA-C expression in a paediatric and HIV infected context. The scope of Dan's research spans various other features of host genetics, such as the influence of killer immunoglobulin like receptors (KIR) on HIV pathogenesis.
