Kevin W. Joseph, B.S., has been awarded funding in the amount of $25,320 towards an annual stipend in addition to tuition and conference attendance travel costs for up to a two-year period by the Pitt AIDS Research Training (PART) program supported through the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIH/NIAID) for his research project entitled, “Characterization of the Integrated HIV-1 Proviral Landscape in Maintaining Persistent HIV-1 Infection.”

Kevin is a pre-doctoral student in the Infectious Diseases and Microbiology (IDM) program, who has worked in my laboratory since 2015. He recently completed his second year of study in the IDM program. Kevin’s doctoral work will identify the influence of HIV proviral integration site location in the human genome on latency and persistence of HIV.

Please join us in congratulating Kevin!
