Instructor in Medicine
Dr. Chong specializes in innate immunology and infectious diseases, with a special focus on how innate immunity responds to flavivirus infection. He is also very interested in identifying host factors of flaviviruses including West Nile virus, Dengue virus, Zika virus, etc. by using CRISPR screening.
The Herbert S. Gasser Professor, Departments of Medicine, Molecular Microbiology, Pathology & Immunology
Michael Diamond, MD, PhD is the leader of a basic and translational research laboratory studying the interface between viral pathogenesis and host immunity. His laboratory focuses on emerging RNA viruses including flaviviruses, alphaviruses, and coronaviruses.
The Robert E. and Louise F. Dunn Distinguished Professor of Medical Sciences, Departments of Medicine and Pathology and Immunology
Dr. Klein is an internationally renowned neuroimmunologist who oversees a basic and translational science research program focused on the pathogenesis of neuroinfectious diseases of the central nervous system (CNS). Studies in the Klein laboratory focus on cellular and molecular mechanisms that orchestrate inflammation and define its impact on CNS function during both viral and autoimmune encephalitides.
Associate Professor, Departments of Medicine and Molecular Microbiology
Dr. Kyei specializes in HIV basic and translational research, with a special focus on viral latency and reactivation specifically: (i) characterization of factors that control HIV replication in macrophages, dendritic and resting T cells and (ii) identification of cellular factors and small molecules required for HIV reactivation in latently infected cell and (iii) perspectives of HIV patients on HIV cure.
Associate Professor, Departments of Medicine, Pathology and Immunology, and Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics
The Leung Lab is focused on developing a mechanistic understanding of host-pathogen interactions that contribute to viral pathogenesis through immune evasion.

Dr. Nair’s research focuses on defining the role of Staphylococcus colonization in control of skin viral infections and Investigating the mechanisms of Zika virus-based oncolytic activity against glioblastoma and potential of combination therapies and/or current radiation strategies.
Assistant Professor of Medicine
Dr. Rauseo specializes in clinical infectious diseases, with a special focus on mycology and infectious that affect immunocompromised hosts. Since the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic she has served as an investigator in the Infectious Disease Clinical Research Unit (ID-CRU) in multiple clinical trials and translational research in the fight against COVID-19.
Associate Professor in Medicine and of Pathology & Immunology
The Shan lab uses in vitro, ex vivo, and humanized mouse models to study basic immunobiology of HIV infection and develops immunotherapeutic strategies towards an HIV cure; HIV-1 infection and host immune responses
Associate Professor of Medicine
Dr. Thackray specializes in basic research on RNA viruses with a specific focus on the role of the microbiome in host immunity and pathogenic outcome following systemic virus infection. She also uses model systems to characterize therapeutics and vaccines against emerging pandemic viruses such as SARS-CoV-2.
