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.

Michelle Skelton did her undergraduate training at the University of the Western Cape. After completing her Masters in Oesophageal Cancer and the role of Tumour Suppressor genes she was employed as a Research officer at the University of Witwatersrand in the Department of Molecular Hepatology. Her PhD explored the role of Hepatitis B Virus genome variation in liver cancer, this was followed by short research projects in HIV diversity at the University of Cape Town where she subsequently enrolled for a Post doctorate with Professor Dandara’s Pharmacogenomics Group in the Division of Human Genetics UCT. During her Post doctorate Michelle was particularly interested in the role of virus restriction genes and how variation in these genes between various ethnicities may contribute to differences in the prevalence of HIV infection. Currently, Michelle is the H3Africa Project Manager. The Human Heredity and Health in H3Africa (H3Africa) Consortium is jointly funded by the NIH and Wellcome Trust and supports 26 Research Sites in Africa. Through supporting cutting edge genomics research in infectious and communicable disease and ethics, the project aims to build capacity and improve health in Africa.
