Nancie M. Archin, PhD, assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Infectious Illnesses at the UNC College of Medicine, has been awarded the Diversity in Science and Excellence award by the International Society for Antiviral Analysis. The $five,000 award is granted to a scientist from a historically underrepresented group who has created substantial contributions to the field of antiviral analysis. Archin’s analysis focuses on HIV Latency and Remedy HIV infection and latency in ladies. She utilizes molecular biology and biochemical approaches to study elements that contribute to HIV persistence and seeks to create approaches to disrupt latency and clear infected cells. Archin is 1 of the recipients of the ISAR 2024 award.
The International Society for Antiviral Analysis (ISAR) was established in 1987 and is a prominent organization for scientists involved in a variety of elements of antiviral analysis. Their annual International Conference on Antiviral Analysis attracts researchers from diverse fields such as chemistry, biology, and clinical medicine. Dr. Archin’s recognition is a testament to her dedication and knowledge in the field of antiviral analysis.
