Dr. Shen has ongoing research studying latent reservoirs of HIV infection. She is investigating the mechanisms of how the reservoirs are formed and potential ways to remove the latent reservoir. Her newest work involves the role of Endothelial cells in HIV latent reservoir in T cells. Read more about Professor Shen's HIV research with students.
Dr. Shen is a member of the Madison Square Christian Reformed Church, the Grand Rapids Chinese Christian church, and the Chinese Christian Church of Baltimore. She enjoys music and worship, photography, and playing volleyball.
