Dr Wood is a Research Career Award Fellow.

She is an HIV computational scientist working particularly on questions of evolution and molecular dynamics. Her research is focused on understanding the characteristics of the HIV surface protein (envelope) that allow the virus to continue to evade the host immune system and antiretroviral drugs. These characteristics include the ‘sugar coat’, comprised of carbohydrates/glycans, on the HIV envelope surface that are vital for protein folding, transmission, infection, as well as immune escape and activation.
