Dr. Pennings is an Assistant Professor of Biology. Her lab, named the CoDE Lab, works on understanding the evolution of pathogens. This is an important topic because when pathogens like viruses and bacteria evolve they often become drug resistant or they are no longer recognized by our immune system. CoDE mostly works on the evolution of drug resistance in HIV. Check out the lab here:
