Beginning in mid-2015, Dr. Witwer is PI on a five-year NIH-funded project to investigate the role of extracellular vesicles in HIV infection and cigarette abuse. A graduate student position is available. Work on this project will be coordinated with collaborators in France and Argentina.
Dr. Witwer strongly supports undergraduate research, and has mentored almost 20 students in some capacity. Undergraduates in the lab have presented at scientific conferences, received research awards, and become co-authors on scientific publications; they regularly go on to professional degree programs. Please contact Dr. Witwer (email) to inquire about available research positions.
