Keith R. Fowke Keith R. Fowke
Department Head and Professor
Department of Medical Microbiology
University of Manitoba

Dr. Fowke received his Microbiology from the University of Manitoba (U of M). He then initiated graduate work in the U of M’s Department of Medical Microbiology under the direction of Drs. J. Neil Simonsen and Francis Plummer. His PhD thesis work entitled “Resistance to HIV-1 Infection Among a Group of Continuously Exposed Women” consisted of the initial description of HIV resistance in the Pumwani Sex Workers Cohort in Nairobi, Kenya. After receiving his Ph.D. in 1995, Dr. Fowke sought to strengthen his interest in cellular immunology through a postdoctoral fellowship in the lab of Dr. Gene Shearer at the National Institutes of Health’s National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland. Over the next four years Dr. Fowke’s research focused on immune dysregulation in HIV infection. In October 1999 Dr. Fowke was recruited to a tenure-track Assistant Professor Position in the U of M’s Department of Medical Microbiology and was promoted to Associate Professor in April 2004 and full professor in 2009. He is currently cross appointed as a Professor in the U of M’s Department of Community Health Sciences and is a Visiting Lecturer in the Department of Medical Microbiology at the University of Nairobi.

Research Interest

The Viral Immunology Laboratory is currently focusing on three major areas of research. The first is determining the immunological phenotype and genetic expression of CD4+ T-cells in individuals who are resistant to HIV infection or those who are infected but able to control their viral replication.
