Dr. Margolis is a Sarah Graham Keenan Distinguished Professor of Medicine, and Director, UNC HIV Cure Center. A clinician, virologist, and molecular biologist, he seeks to re-purpose old drugs and discover new ones to eradicate cells that are persistently infected with HIV, and cure this chronic viral disease. The effort has generated collaborations across disciplines at UNC, and with the pharmaceutical industry, and studies of basic cellular biochemical mechanism, using cutting-edge molecular tools and biochemical probes.
