  • Clinical Laboratory and Biomarkers Core

    Lab Website
    Principal Investigator:
    Craig W. Hendrix, M.D.
    Medicine

    The Clinical Laboratory and Biomarkers Cores will coordinate access to laboratory expertise, te...sting, training, specimen repositories and Good Clinical Laboratory Practices (GCLP). The goals of this core are to assure that all JHU HIV investigators have access to and utilize appropriate, validated and, where applicable, certified laboratory assays. The core will also maintain a biomarker specimen repository for storage cataloguing and utilization of biological specimens. view more

  • Craig W. Hendrix Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Craig W. Hendrix, M.D.
    Medicine

    Research in the Craig W. Hendrix Lab concentrates on the chemoprevention of HIV infection, clin...ical pharmacology of antiviral drugs, drug interactions, and oral, topical and injectable HIV microbicide development. Our lab conducts small, intensive sampling studies of PK and PD of drugs for HIV prevention with a focus on developing methods to better understand HIV and drug distribution in the male genital tract, female genital tract and lower gastrointestinal tract. We also support numerous HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis development studies from phase I to phase III, largely as leader of the Pharmacology Core Laboratory of both the Microbicide Trial Network and HIV Prevention Trials Network. view more

  • David Graham Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    David Graham, Ph.D., M.S.
    Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology

    The David Graham Lab studies the consequences of HIV interactions with the immune system, the r...esulting pathogenesis and how to sabotage these interactions. We apply advanced technologies like mass spectrometry to dissect processes at the molecular level. We are also actively involved in cardiovascular research and studies the ways proteins are organized into functional units in different cell types of the heart.

    Major projects in our lab are organized into three major areas: (1) H/SIV pathogenesis and neuropathogenesis, (2) Cardiovascular disease, and (3) High technology development

  • David Thomas Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    David Thomas, M.D., M.P.H.
    Medicine

    The David Thomas Lab oversees clinical research projects that aim to understand the natural his...tory and pathogenesis of hepatitis C virus infection. A special area of clinical and research focus is liver disease in HIV-infected people. view more

  • Erica Johnson Lab

    Lab Website
    Principal Investigator:
    Erica Johnson, M.D.
    Medicine

    Research in the Erica Johnson Lab investigates infection control in military deployment environ...ments as well as infections that are associated with combat trauma. We explore topics such as HIV outcomes, gender-based health issues and disparities in care. view more

  • Gail Berkenblit Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Gail Berkenblit, M.D., Ph.D.
    Medicine

    The Gail Berkenblit Lab focuses on HIV testing. We are particularly interested in the training ...of residents as it relates to HIV outpatient care, and the development and assessment of online curriculum. view more

  • Gregory Kirk Lab

    Research in the Gregory Kirk Lab examines the natural history of viral infections — particularl...y HIV and hepatitis viruses — in the U.S. and globally. As part of the ALIVE (AIDS Linked to the Intravenous Experience) study, our research looks at a range of pathogenetic, clinical behavioral issues, with a special focus on non-AIDS-related outcomes of HIV, including cancer and liver and lung diseases. We use imaging and clinical, genetic, epigenetic and proteomic methods to identify and learn more about people at greatest risk for clinically relevant outcomes from HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C infections. Our long-term goal is to translate our findings into targeted interventions that help reduce the disease burden of these infections. view more

  • Haughey Lab: Neurodegenerative and Neuroinfectious Disease

    Lab Website
    Principal Investigator:
    Norman Haughey, Ph.D.
    Neurology
    Neurosurgery

    Dr. Haughey directs a disease-oriented research program that address questions in basic neurobi...ology, and clinical neurology. The primary research interests of the laboratory are:

    1. To identify biomarkers markers for neurodegenerative diseases including HIV-Associated Neurocognitive Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s disease. In these studies, blood and cerebral spinal fluid samples obtained from ongoing clinical studies are analyzed for metabolic profiles through a variety of biochemical, mass spectrometry and bioinformatic techniques. These biomarkers can then be used in the diagnosis of disease, as prognostic indicators to predict disease trajectory, or as surrogate markers to track the effectiveness of disease modifying interventions.
    2. To better understand how the lipid components of neuronal, and glial membranes interact with proteins to regulate signal transduction associated with differentiation, motility, inflammatory signaling, survival, and neuronal excitability.
    3. To understand how extracellular vesicles (exosomes) released from brain resident cells regulate neuronal excitability, neural network activity, and peripheral immune responses to central nervous system damage and infections.
    4. To develop small molecule therapeutics that regulate lipid metabolism as a neuroprotective and restorative strategy for neurodegenerative conditions.
