Archin, PhD, assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Infectious Ailments at the UNC College of Medicine, has been awarded the Diversity in Science and Excellence award by the International Society for Antiviral Investigation. The $five,000 award is granted to a scientist from a historically underrepresented group who has produced substantial 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 techniques to study elements that contribute to HIV persistence and seeks to create techniques to disrupt latency and clear infected cells. Archin is 1 of the recipients of the ISAR 2024 award.
The International Society for Antiviral Investigation (ISAR) was established in 1987 and is a prominent organization for scientists involved in a variety of elements of antiviral investigation. Their annual International Conference on Antiviral Investigation attracts researchers from unique fields such as chemistry, biology, and clinical medicine. Dr. Archin’s recognition is a testament to her dedication and experience in the field of antiviral investigation.
