Research Activities

Prof Crowe AM's interests include the role of immune cells (monocytes and macrophages) in HIV pathogenesis, how these cells are reservoirs of virus in HIV-infected individuals and the role of these cells in premature ageing of the immune system in HIV-infected individuals resulting in the accelerated onset of diseases associated with ageing including cardiovascular disease.  She is also committed to translational research and technology transfer for low cost CD4, viral load and drug resistance tests to monitor HIV infection in developing countries. She coordinates HIV clinical training sessions for doctors and nurses in resource limited countries (India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Lao PDR, PNG, Fiji). Her laboratory also strengthens the capacity of laboratories in the Asia Pacific region.
