Ravindra Gupta    

Professor of Clinical Microbiology at the University of Cambridge

Professor Ravindra Gupta is a professor of clinical microbiology at the Cambridge Institute of Therapeutic Immunology and Infectious Disease at the University of Cambridge. He is also a member of the faculty of the Africa Health Research Institute in Durban, South Africa. Gupta was named as one of TIME’s 100 most influential people of 2020.

Gupta initially trained as a clinical infectious diseases physician and went on to do a PhD at University College London, where he examined the epidemiology and virology of HIV drug resistance in sub-Saharan Africa and the interplay between the restriction factor tetherin and the HIV gene Vpu. Most of his work since has focussed on antiviral therapy for treatment of HIV, and he has led a number of studies, both clinical and in vitro, aimed at addressing the global emerging threat of drug resistant HIV. His programme of work is informed by clinical work as an infectious diseases physician, through which he has been able to study unique individuals with HIV in order to better understand viral reservoirs and immune control of HIV.
