Research Interest

Dr Ho is a viral immunologist with a research interest in how the body protects itself against viral infections, particularly human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and HIV and/or HCV diseases. The work in the Ho laboratory is focused on virus-host interactions that govern innate immune response and viral replication within a target cell. One question that is interesting to the Ho laboratory is how HIV /HCV escape from host defense mechanisms, resulting in persistent infection.
