Rami Kantor's research focuses on the evolution of HIV drug resistance to antiretroviral medications, which jeopardizes treatment success. The research incorporates bioinformatics, sequence and phylogenetic analyses, databases and data management, as well as basic laboratory research. More specifically, he is studying the evolution of drug resistance in HIV variants that predominate in resource-limited settings and in developing countries, where the majority of the AIDS epidemic is located.
