Dr. Montano’s laboratory investigates host-pathogen response during HIV-1 infection. Research initiatives include the identification and analysis of host genes and molecular mechanisms engaged during HIV-1 infection and transmission; interaction between host immune factors and muscle remodeling during HIV associated wasting; and transcriptional control and evolution of HIV-1 sequences. The laboratory utilizes tools in molecular virology, quantitative analysis of gene and protein expression, and genome-wide microarray analysis to characterize transcriptional profiles association with HIV-1 infection, transmission and pandemic spread.
