UENO Project Laboratory
We have been interested in polymorphic nature of HIV-1 genes and proteins as well as their consequences to heterologous protein functions, viralreplication competency, viral immune evasion and disease progression in vivo. Specifically, our recent focus is on HIV-1 accessory genes andproteins such as Nef, Vpu, Vif and Vpr. A feature of our group is a largeand interactive intercontinental collaboration network comprising of USA, Canada, UK, Germany, Australia, China, South Africa, and beyond. Inaddition, we have recently initiated an implementing research at Tanzanialocated in Sub-Saharan Africa, most important HIV/AIDS epidemic region in the globe.
