Since August 2015
Master's thesis at HIV Translational Research Unit (HTRU), department "Inwendige Ziekten". The master's thesis involves targeting latent HIV present in viral reservoirs, in an attempt to reactivate the virus and neutralize it using a "shock and kill" strategy. HIV latency is heavily regulated by epigenetic modifications. In this master's thesis, an attempt will be made to undo these epigenetic modifications using a CRISPR/dCas9 construct linked with an epigenetic modifier.
