Meeting at Faculty Center cancelled due to coronavirus concerns.
https://www PhotoPaul A. Krogstad, MD is a Professor with a joint appointment in the Departments of Pediatrics and Molecular and Pharmacology, and serves as the Fellowship Director for the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program. Dr. Krogstad's laboratory focuses on molecular virology and the pathogenesis of viral diseases. Major areas of interest include studying the role that cellular proteins play in promoting the assembly of viral proteins into infectious HIV particles, and their release from lymphocytes and other infected cells. His studies of HIV pathogenesis currently include the impact of HIV on T cell production and turnover in HIV infected children and adolescents. These studies may suggest new forms of therapy for HIV infection which target viral-cellular interactions, and in new approaches to the reversing immunological impact of HIV on immunological ontogeny. Dr. Krogstad's laboratory research also includes molecular approaches to the identification of novel agents involved in idiopathic liver failure, and cellular factors involved in Coxsackie myocarditis. In addition, he has lead and collaborated in several studies of new drugs for the treatment of HIV, and leads the instruction of the module in the David Geffen School of Medicine on anti-infective agents. Dr. Krogstad has received numerous teaching awards (including The Robert C. Neerhout Teaching Award in 2003) and was the recipient of the Pediatric AIDS Foundation Scholar Award in 1991 and the Elizabeth Glaser Scientist Award (the Foundation?s highest scientific honor) in 2000 for his excellence in the field.
