Necesitamos un mentor
He tenido el honor de trabajar con un gran científico y a él, no puedo estar más agradecido. Él me ha enseñado y me ha permitido trabajar en su investigaciónes que despues se hicieron mía. Él me ha dado la pasión por la investigación y el poder del conocimiento.
Si no tienes un mentor, ve a buscar uno.
Siempre me preguntan cómo aprendí a hacer esto. y siempre digo lo mismo ... al hacerlo.
Pero mi mentor me dio la oportunidad de hacerlo: Dr. Paul Shapshak
Dr. Shapshak, you rock!

This book on NeuroAIDS, a collection of chapters written by experts and specialists from around the world, provides a global perspective on HIV and NeuroAIDS in the field, clinic, and laboratory. The chapters address the comorbidity of HIV and other infectious agents, including Zika virus, Ebola, Chagas disease, TB and HCV. Also discussed are key topics, such as: Molecular socioepidemiology, Global HIV and NeuroAIDS, Neuropathology, cART and blood-brain barrier penetration, HIV replicative oscillations, HIV and SIV evolution, Psychiatric comorbidities, Neurosyphilis , and the examination of current and innovative models of translational research to translational effectiveness

We analyzed gene expression in neurons from 16 cases divided into four groups, ie, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated dementia (HAD)/HIV encephalitis (HAD/HIVE), HAD alone, HIVE alone, and HIV positive alone. We produced the neurons using laser capture microdissection from cryopreserved basal ganglia (specifically globus pallidus).

The human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1) gp160 (gp120-gp41 complex) trimer envelope (ENV) protein is a potential vaccine candidate for HIV/AIDS. HIV-1 vaccine development has been problematic and charge polarity as well as sequence variation across clades may relate to the difficulties.

Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common cause of dementia, has few clinical similarities to HIV-1-associated dementia (HAD). However, genes were identified related among these dementias. Discovering correlations between gene function, expression, and structure in the human genome continues to aid in understanding the similarities between pathogenesis of these two dementing disorders

As a model for Neuropsychiatric dysfunction in NeuroAIDS due to HIV-1 infection and drug abuse, we analyzed gene expression in human neurons treated with cocaine and HIV-1 proteins tat and envelope (env). One-way ANOVA showed statistically significant genes among the treatment groups (p ≤ 0.0005). The identified genes were then subjected to a "stepwise" analysis using a repeated measures ANOVA to discover genes with parallel response group profiles across the treatment conditions.
