Dr. Wei-Shau Hu received her Ph.D. in Genetics from the University of California, Davis, in 1987.  She studied the mechanisms of DNA recombination that lead to human a-thalassemia in Dr. James Shen's laboratory.  Under Dr. Howard Temin's guidance, she studied the mechanisms of retroviral recombination as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Wisconsin.  In 1991, Dr. Hu joined the faculty of West Virginia University as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunobiology and the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center.  She was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 1998.  In 1999, she joined the National Cancer Institute as Senior Investigator and Head of the Viral Recombination Section in the HIV Drug Resistance Program (renamed as the HIV Dynamics and Replication Program in 2015).  Dr. Hu was an organizer of the 2009 Cold Spring Harbor Retroviruses conference.  She currently serves as the Frederick representative of Women Science Advisors for the Center for Cancer Research, a member of the Special Review Panel and Study Section of the National Institutes of Health extramural grant funding programs, and a member of the National Cancer Institute promotion review panel.  In 2012, she was the recipient of one of the five grants that the U.S.-Russia Joint Working Group on Biomedical Research Cooperation awarded to National Cancer Institute intramural investigators for their highly meritorious research applications; Dr. Hu's application was focused on understanding the impact of HIV-1 recombination and cell-to-cell transmission on vaccine development and chemoprevention strategy.
