Welcome to the Barker Lab!

Research in the Barker lab is focused on understanding innate immune responses to viral infection, particularly in response to HIV and other retroviruses. We are specifically asking two questions:

How are viral nucleic acids sensed in infected cells to signal an inflammatory response?
How are variations in nucleic acid sensors related to viral pathogenesis?
