Dr. Stefan Sarafianos
A press release was issued today from the laboratory of Dr. Stephanos Sarafianos. Dr. Sarafianos teaches at the Bond Life Sciences Center at the University of Missouri - Columbia. Collaborators on the XMRV research are Donald Burke, Marc Johnson, and Shan-Lu Liu, who are also Bond Life Sciences Center investigators. They all work in the molecular microbiology and immunology department at the University of Missouri.Here is the research - on the right hand side of the page under "Unraveling the mysterious XMRV virus."This is all quite amazing and who would have expected this? One thing that it indicates is that many places are terribly interested in figuring out XMRV, what it does, how it operates, and what to do about it. This can be seen as nothing but good news. Dr. Sarafianos also gets NIH funding for HIV studies.
