HIV Virology Core
Directed by Chris Aiken and Alan Engelman
The HIV Virology Core (HVC) provides virological support for structural and biochemical studies that require functional validation. This is accomplished through the utilization of established assays of HIV infection, replication, virus and host cell genetic manipulations, imaging, as well as biochemical assays of preintegration complex (PIC) and capsid function. The Core is fully involved in several PCHPI projects.
