Dr. Nina Lin is a physician scientist who is engaged in HIV translational research. Her research is focused on understanding the effect of chronic HIV infection on aging of the immune system and chronic inflammation. She is the PI on several clinical trials, including being a co-Chair of ACTG A5325 and A5220s, to evaluate interventions which may improve or alter the clinical course of chronic HIV infection. Her research while at MGH/BWH had been on understanding HIV-1 coreceptor usage in subtype C infection and the factors associated with its switching. She is the Director of the BU Infectious Disease Clinical Research Unit (CRU) where several HIV and/or infectious diseases clinical studies are being conducted.
