In the absence of pharmaceutical interventions, social distancing is being used worldwide to curb the spread of COVID-19. The impact of these measures has been inconsistent, with some regions rapidly nearing disease elimination and others seeing...

Alison Lynn HillI’m sharing a simulation tool I put together for studying COVID19 dynamics and generating visualizations without having to do a bunch of coding yourself. Hoping it can help with your coronavirus-related research and teaching. alhill.shinyapps.io/COVID19seir/ (1/7)
Antiretroviral therapy can halt HIV-1 replication but cannot clear the hidden reservoirs of latent virus. In new work, Lim et al . treated SIV-infected rhesus macaques on antiretroviral therapy with up to 19 doses of the Toll-like receptor 7...
Alison Lynn HillWhitney lab @BIDMChealth + @GileadSciences show that a new HIV drug class (TLR7 agonist) is the most effective so far at reactivating latent virus and a few animals are completely cured after stopping all drugs!
Author summary Viral infections such as HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and influenza may be treated with antiviral drug therapy. These drugs generally block a specific phase of the virus’s life cycle, preventing it from replicating in the body....
Alison Lynn HillCan viruses evolve drug resistance by syncing up with our patterns of taking pills? Check out our new paper for some clues!
Alison Lynn HillDoes HIV therapy stop viral replication? Our new paper on misleading evolutionary signatures in HIV now out. An example of how standard phylogenetic methods can fail for infections with unusual host population dynamics.
Our tax burden could increase by tens of thousands of dollars, based on money we don’t even make.
Alison Lynn HillFellow PIs/Profs: Time to stand up for students, or commit to covering these extra costs ourselves. Ridiculous legislation. Thanks @mit_hst student Erin Rousseau (@byrnethewitch) for summarizing
The Program for Evolutionary Dynamics (PED) at Harvard University welcomes applications for a postdoctoral fellow to work in the field of infectious disease modeling with Dr. Alison Hill and Professor Martin Nowak. We are seeking a motivated and...
