I am a Professor of Microbiology at NYU School of Medicine at New York. My research interests are understanding how human immune system works, HIV infection and pathogenesis, hematopoetic stem cells, aging of the immune system and reprogramming the differentiation programs of lymphocytes.
I am also very much interested in accelerating technological advances and their potential future impact. Especially I believe exponential advances in biology, nanotechnology and computer science are merging and creating a synergistic and remarkable progress in technology. I aim to follow and contribute to these advances with the hope that they will have positive impact on our health, greatly increasing our lifespans, enhancing our standard of living and improving our environment.
