Dr. Ivona Pandrea is a Professor of Pathology at University of Pittsburgh. Her expertise is in the pathogenesis of HIV/SIV infection. Dr. Pandrea’s work is aimed at understanding the role of the HIV/SIV-related intestinal dysfunction in promoting chronic inflammation, disease progression and development of comorbidities. To this aim Pandrea’s laboratory performs interventions and comparative analyses between progressive, nonprogressive and elite controlled infections in Asian and African non-human primate models of AIDS.
Dr. Pandrea’s goal is to identify new immunotherapeutic strategies that, in association to antiretroviral drugs, may ultimately improve gut health and transform HIV-1 infection into a nonprogressive infection.
