Koh Fujinaga, PhD
Koh Fujinaga obtained his PhD in the late 90's at Hokkaido University in Japan and came to UC San Francisco (UCSF) for postdoc studies under B. Matija Peterlin.
Fujinaga went on to continue his research at Case Western and the University of Michigan in the 2000's, and returned to UCSF in 2010. Since then, he has co-run a lab with Peterlin, and after his-semi retirement, he took over the lab in Parnassus. This year, after Peterlin's official retirement, he joined Nevan Krogan's HARC team and Alan Frankel's lab in Mission Bay, while remaining administratively in the department of medicine/rheumatology as an adjunct associate professor.
Fujinaga's main research interest is biochemical analysis of transcriptional regulation in immune cells, which control HIV replication/latency and cellular immune functions.
