My training is in medicine, experimental pathology, and immunology. My research activities center on the cellular immunology and pathogenesis of infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and I also direct the flow cytometry core laboratory for the School of Hygiene and Public Health. Some specific research interests are:


Regulation of T Cell turnover and homeostasis in HIV infection. Effects of illicit drugs on immune function. Early events in HIV infection

  • Human immunodeficiency virus immune assessment immune deficiency T-cells flow cytometry cell sorting pathogenesis of HIV
  • Margolick, J.B., Muñoz, A., Donnenberg, A., Park, L.P., Galai, N., Giorgi, J.V., O'Gorman, M., Ferbas, J. and the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study. Failure of T cell homeostasis preceding AIDS in HIV-1 infection. Nature Medicine 1:674-680, 1995.
