Archin, PhD, assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Infectious Illnesses at the UNC College of Medicine, has been awarded the Diversity in Science and Excellence award by the International Society for Antiviral Study. The $five,000 award is granted to a scientist from a historically underrepresented group who has created important contributions to the field of antiviral investigation. Archin’s investigation focuses on HIV Latency and Remedy HIV infection and latency in girls. She utilizes molecular biology and biochemical procedures to study components that contribute to HIV persistence and seeks to create procedures to disrupt latency and clear infected cells.
