Research interest for patients

Eric M. Poeschla, M.D., is Professor of Medicine and Chief of Infectious Diseases at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. He graduated from Yale Medical School and completed his clinical residency in internal medicine at UC San Francisco, followed by a fellowship in infectious diseases and molecular virology at UC San Diego. Before joining the University of Colorado, he was on the faculty of the Department of Molecular Medicine at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine.
His research group investigates the roles that cellular proteins play in HIV-1 and other viral replication cycles, and innate immune system factors that mediate frontline antiviral defenses and prevent cross-species virus transmission. They are interested in cellular systems that sense and respond defensively to viral RNA (e.g., MDA5) and DNA and also prevent autoimmunity to self nucleic acids. More recently, in a collaboration with the Santiago lab, his lab has investigated innate immunity to SARS-CoV-2. Pubmed:
