Immunology

Research mainly focuses on understanding how the immune system responds to infection by human immunodeficiency virus and selected bacterial pathogens, and how it causes the rejection of transplanted organs. Studies routinely utilize molecular, biochemical, cell culture, and animal models.

Our research uses molecular and cell biology approaches to investigate HIV-1 pathogenesis and the human cellular immune response to viral infection.
