Who we are and what we are interested in.




Jointly organized by us and Thumbi Ndung’u.




We are based in Durban, South Africa, at the epicenter of the HIV and TB epidemics in KwaZulu-Natal. We are part of the Africa Health Research Institute (AHRI) and the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology (MPIIB). We use in vitro experiments, computational approaches, and clinical samples to understand reservoirs of infection at the level of the individual cell, and the selective pressures which determine if and how fast evolution of drug resistance occurs.
