Lab member Dwayne Evans wins ARCS scholarship

18 Nov

Dwayne joined the lab in 2015 and works on drug resistance and Prep (a drug that prevents HIV infection). He is now an ARCS scholar! Congrats, Dwayne!

The ARCS website writes about Dwayne: An MBRS-RISE (Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement) and Genentech Dissertation Scholar, Dwayne’s research interests include the evolution of drug resistance in the Human Immunodeficiency Virus type-1 when exposed to Pre Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). At SFSU, his research is focused on determining whether PrEP increases the number of patients with drug resistance. Dwayne plans on pursuing a Ph.D. in bioinformatics and continuing to study the relationship between HIV drug resistance and patient infection rates. Aside from research, Dwayne enjoys mentoring undergraduates, learning R programming language and teaching locking choreography in dance classes.
