Dr. McCune's research focuses on the definition of pathogenic mechanisms of viral diseases, particularly HIV-1 disease. This focus has spanned a range of fields, from understanding critical structural determinants of infectivity to devising a small animal model (the SCID-hu Thy/Liv mouse), to studying HIV pathogenesis and prioritizing antiretroviral compounds against HIV.
