Alexandra L. Howell, Ph.D.
Dr. Howell has been a VA funded investigator at the White River Junction VA Medical Center Research Service since 1993. She also holds a dual appointment at Dartmouth College as Research Associate Professor of Medicine and Microbiology/Immunology.
Dr. Howell was an integral part of the building stages of what is now known as the HIV labs, TRB 44. Dr. Howell's laboratory is studying ways to inhibit the transmission of HIV-1 to women. "In our research, we are using a 'humanized mouse' model that makes the mice susceptible to infection with HIV-1, and thus serve as a suitable model to test our hypothesis."
