In collaboration with Michael Kay and his lab, Debbie studies the HIV entry pathway and develops inhibitors that target a transient viral intermediate of membrane fusion. Debbie is particularly interested in expanding what we have learned about HIV entry and its vulnerabilties into developing entry inhibitors of other viral families such as filoviruses and paramyxoviruses. Debbie has over 13 years of experience in the field of protein interactions, including biophysical and structural methods, and serves as the director of the Protein Interactions Core.
