I am an evolutionary biologist and work on the evolution of drug resistance in HIV. I want to understand what determines the rate of evolution of drug resistance, so that we can find ways to halt the evolution of drug resistance.
If you have questions or would like to discuss an idea, feel free to drop me a line (pennings at sfsu.edu)!
