Annamarie’s PhD project involves studying the evolution of alternate co-receptor use by dual tropic (R5X4) HIV-1 viruses for entry in target cells. The project aims to identify regions or determinants within HIV’s envelope glycoproteins, gp120 and gp41, the main mediators of HIV entry into target cells that play significant roles in alternate coreceptor use by this subset of viruses.
