Welcome to the Li Wu lab!

Wu Lab 2020

Dr. Wu’s lab studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms of HIV replication, virus interaction with host factors and antiviral innate immunity. The lab focuses on the mechanisms of HIV restriction by the host protein SAMHD1. We also investigate the mechanisms by which RNA modifications regulate HIV gene expression in cells
