My research interest focuses on adaptive T-cell responses in HIV-1 transmission and pathogenesis. I am especially interested in understanding the role of HIV-1 specific CD8 and CD4 T-cells and their interplay with the host genetics in influencing the course of HIV-1 disease. This basic information is imperative for HIV-1 vaccine design as the correlates of immune protection are yet unknown.
