L.G. Kostrikis (Biography
L.G. Kostrikis

Dr. Lewis is a Professor of Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases at the McGovern Medical School at the University of Texas Health Science center in Houston. Dr. Lewis received her PhD in Microbiology in 1978 from the University of Arizona. She did an NIH supported postdoctoral fellowship on the genetics of autoimmune disease and then became a faculty member at Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Lewis is a cellular immunologist who has studied HIV pathogenesis for over 30 years. She was one of the first to identify CD8 dysfunction and cell death in HIV infected patients, one of the first to realize that much more HIV was being produced in vivo and has recently focused on understanding mechanisms responsible for metabolic dysfunction in HIV infected patients. This novel work shows that HIV infected immune cells are in diverse adipose tissues, the HIV is infectious and that adipose is likely a sanctuary for HIV that will be difficult to clear by CD8 responses or via ART. Dr. Lewis has served on many NIH study sections and was Chair of the AIDS Immunopathogenesis study section from 2009-2011. She also served on the NIAID council from 2002-2006. She is the author of more than 190 papers and several book chapters.

J.V. Garcia (Biography
J.V. Garcia

Dr. Garcia is currently a Professor of Medicine in the Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), the Institute for Global Health & Infectious Diseases (IGHID), and the Division of Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine all at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is also an Oliver Smithies Investigator. Throughout his career, Dr. Garcia has made seminal contributions to the understanding of HIV pathogenesis, specifically the function of Nef, which is an important determinant of HIV pathogenesis and disease progression. More recently, Dr. Garcia’s group has established an outstanding track record in the development, implementation and use of humanized mice. Since their landmark publications describing the humanized BLT TOM and more recent MOM mouse models have been widely used to address key questions of HIV infection, transmission, prevention, and more recently, persistence and cure.
