  • Kenrad Nelson Lab

    Research in the Kenrad Nelson Lab focuses on diseases such as hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, leprosy, nosocomial infections, tuberculosis and infections in drug users. We study populations including HIV/AIDS patients, injection drug users, blood donors and transfusion recipients in the United States as well as in China, Thailand, Bangladesh and the Republic of Georgia. We are currently investigating the connection between HIV infection and drug use as part of the ALIVE study.

    Research Areas: Hepatitis, AIDS, blood donors, HIV, drug users, leprosy, tuberculosis, nosocomial infections

  • Larry Chang Lab

    Research in the Larry Chang Lab focuses on innovative, multidisciplinary and pragmatic approaches to impacting the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Our research investigates ways to improve HIV/AIDS care in low- and middle-income settings through strategies that include quantitative methods, qualitative methods, community-based trial designs, and behavioral science and economic evaluations. In addition, we research mobile technologies for health (mHealth) strategies for improving global public health and clinical care, including novel applications for intimate-partner violence intervention, dengue surveillance, and HIV care, surveillance and prevention.

    Research Areas: global health, infectious disease, AIDS, HIV, mHealth

  • Marvel Cognitive Neuropsychiatric Research Laboratory

    The Cognitive Neuropsychiatric Research Laboratory (CNRLab) is part of the Division of Cognitive Neuroscience within the Department of Neurology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Its current projects include investigating the motor system's contribution to cognitive function; HIV-related neuroplasticity and attention-to-reward as predictors of real world function; and brain function and cognition in Lyme disease.

    Research Areas: HIV, neuroplasticity, movement disorders, cognitive function

  • Mary Catherine Beach Lab

    Research in the Mary Catherine Beach Lab focuses on physician mindfulness and the patient-provider relationship and how such factors impact health care quality. Current research involves investigating the theoretical foundations of respect, as well as the impact of physician attitudes and communication on patients in the primary care setting, with a specific focus on HIV, substance abuse and sickle cell disease patients. We also explore issues such as patients’ rights, mental health parity, human subject protection, genetic discrimination, human cloning and stem cell research.

    Research Areas: physician mindfulness, mental health, sickle cell diseases, substance abuse, patient-provider relationships, HIV, patients’ rights

  • Maunank Shah Lab

    Work in the Maunank Shah Lab focuses on infectious disease modeling and health economics, and seeks to investigate new strategies for diagnosing HIV and tuberculosis (TB) in areas with limited resources, both domestically and abroad. Our primary focus is TB diagnostics, with studies examining the diagnostic test accuracy, cost-effectiveness and programmatic impact of emerging diagnostics. We have developed mobile health initiatives to incorporate video-based therapy for TB treatment, and we have a longstanding interest in interventions that help to reduce or prevent HIV transmission.

    Research Areas: health economics, mobile health, infectious disease, AIDS, HIV, tuberculosis

  • Michael Melia Lab

    Research in the Michael Melia Lab focuses primarily on nocardia infections, Lyme disease and hepatitis C. Our studies have included key topics such as risk factors for incident infections during hepatitis C treatment, racial differences in eligibility for hepatitis C treatment and misdiagnosis of Lyme arthritis using the Borrelia burgdorferi immunoblot testing method. We also have a longstanding interest in medical education and work on curriculum to improve the quality of education for medical students and interns.

  • Mohamed Atta Lab

    Research in the Mohamed Atta Lab focuses on kidney diseases in patients with HIV. We recently reviewed the published nephrotoxic effects of newer antiviral therapies for HIV and hepatitis C, specifically looking at the role of epithelial organic transporters in explaining renal toxicities. We also examined the relationship between the APOL1 genotype and renal histology among black patients with HIV who had undergone kidney biopsies.

    Research Areas: kidney diseases, HIV, hepatitis C

  • Namandje N. Bumpus Lab

    The Bumpus Laboratory uses mass spectrometry and molecular pharmacology-based approaches to study the biotransformation of clinically used drugs by the cytochromes P450s. Specifically, we are studying ways to define a role for cytochrome P450-dependent metabolites in the drug-induced acute liver failure that is associated with certain antiviral drugs used to treat HIV and hepatitis C. Our long-term goal is to gain information that can be used to develop therapies that are devoid of toxic events by preventing the formation of a toxic metabolite or by developing strategies for preventing toxicity using concomitant therapy.

    Research Areas: antiviral therapy, drug metabolism, mass spectrometry, HIV, drugs, cellular signaling, cytochromes P450, pharmacology, molecular pharmacology, hepatitis C, metabolomics

  • Neuroimmunopathology Lab

    The research activities of the Neuroimmunopathology Laboratory focus on studies of immunological and molecular mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of neurological disorders. Our main areas of research include studies of neurological complications of HIV infection and AIDS, multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis, autism and epilepsy. We seek to explore and identify immunopathological mechanisms associated with neurological disease that may be the target of potential therapeutic interventions. The laboratory collaborates with other researchers and laboratories at Johns Hopkins and other institutions in projects related with studies of the interaction between the immune and central nervous systems in pathological processes leading to neurological dysfunction.

    Research Areas: multiple sclerosis, autism, epilepsy, HIV, transverse myelitis
