Dan Hameiri Bowen
Dan studied Zoology at Pembroke College before completing a Masters in Global Health with the Nuffield Department of Population Health. 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 acquired HIV positive adolescents from Harare, Zimbabwe.
Dans research focus is on soluble biomarkers in HIV-1 infection. Through collaboration with ongoing clinical trials run by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in Zimbabwe and Malawi, Dan is examining the biomarker profiles associated with airway abnormalities in a cohort of perinatally acquired HIV-1 infected children and adolescents. Combining laboratory and genetic data collected using the novel H3 Africa SNP array, Dans research is helping uncover the genetic basis for variation in immune related proteins.
In collaboration with researchers at the Arctic University of Tromso, Dan is also helping understand the impact of cytomegalovirus on HIV associated co-morbidities in adolescents living with HIV.
