Research Grand Rounds: "HIV-1 infection in Sickle Cell Disease"

Date Fri, Dec 1
Time 12: 00 PM - 1: 00 PM
Location Virtual

Speaker: Sergei Nekhai, PhD

Dr. Sergei Nekhai serves in key academic and research positions at Howard University, holding titles as Professor of Medicine, Microbiology, and Pharmacology, Vice Chair of Medicine, Deputy Director of the Center for Sickle Cell Disease, and Director of the Basic Science Core for the DC-Center for AIDS Research (DC-CFAR).

His major research focus is at the intersection of HIV and sickle cell disease, employing cutting-edge methods ranging from molecular and cellular techniques to animal, human, and population-based studies. Beyond his research, he has played a pivotal role in mentoring a remarkable number of students at every level, postdoctoral trainees, clinicians, and junior faculty.

Dr. Nekhai’s highly impactful collaborative and discipline-spanning work, bridging multiple disciplines in clinical and translational research, has consistently garnered support from major institutions like the NHLBI, NIMHD, NIAID, NIGMS, and NSF. In his upcoming talk, he will delve into the results of recent studies of HIV infection in sickle cell disease, shedding light on this critical area of medical research.

Research Grand Rounds are sponsored by the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) and our partner institutions to bring together our diverse clinical and research communities to share research that spans disciplines and stages of translation to improve individual and community health.
