Speaker at Drug Delivery Events - Mamuka Kvaratskhelia

University of Colorado School of Medicine, United States


Dr. Mamuka Kvaratskhelia began his independent research career at the Ohio State University in 2003 and his research has been focused on better understanding of the structure and function of HIV-1 integrase as a therapeutic target. He has recently (2017) moved to University of Colorado Denver as a Professor of Medicine (Infectious Diseases) to further extend his studies on HIV-1 integrase. By employing innovative biochemical, biophysical, structural biology, molecular biology and virology approaches, his research team has made many important contributions to the field, which include the discovery of second, non-catalytic role of integrase in HIV-1 biology and elucidating the mode of action of allosteric HIV-1 integrase inhibitors (ALLINIs), which are currently in pre-clinical trials.
