Eileen Scully, MD, PhD

Eileen Scully, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, notes HIV infection disrupts the innate immune response disabling protective responses and leading to pathologic inflammation. Her lab is investigating several features of innate immunity in HIV with the goals of: (1) identifying mechanisms of innate immune reprogramming in HIV (2) developing strategies to harness innate immune effector function for HIV cure and (3) defining the contribution of biological sex to variations in HIV immunopathology.
