Plenary

Cell Signaling Pathways Controlling HIV Infection and Latency

Saturday, June 17
8:30 AM - 9:00 AM

Learning Objectives:

Jonathan Karn

Reinberger Professor and Chairman
Case Western Reserve University

Dr Karn is an internationally-recognized virologist who has made seminal contributions to the study of transcriptional control in HIV. Dr Karn’s current research focuses on epigenetic control mechanisms that regulate HIV transcription and latency in T-cells and microglial cells. Understanding these mechanisms is central to current efforts to induce or suppress latent viruses as part of an HIV eradication strategy.

As Chairman of the Department of Molecular Biology he oversaw a period of dramatic enhancement of the research portfolio, increasing the NIH funding base over 4-fold between 2002 and the present during a period of overall contraction for US research funding.

Dr Karn was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology in 2011. He served as Chairman of the NIH AIDS Cell and Molecular Biology Study Section from (2005 to 2007) and is currently a member of the NIAID Advisory Council (2011 to 2015). He is currently a member of the Board of Scientific Counselors, Basic Sciences, of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) of the NIH.

He was the Executive Editor of the Journal of Molecular Biology from 1989 to 2011, and is currently on the editorial board of Journal of Biological Chemistry.
