Virology and HIV
Virology research at UVA utilizes a number of approaches, including immunology, cell biology, structural biology and cancer biology, to study viruses that include influenza, hepatitis C, Ebola, dengue, KSHV and HIV.
Much of the basic research in HIV is conducted at the Myles H. Thaler Center for AIDS and Human Retrovirus Research, a community of infectious disease and immunology experts that ranks among the best in the nation. Researchers address fundamental questions about how HIV replicates at the cellular and molecular level, and how AIDS develops.
