Research Summary: 

A major area of interest for our team is to better understand how neutralizing antibodies against HIV are developed during natural HIV-infection. We are particularly interested in: a) identifying immunological factors influencing the development of such antibodies by HIV+ subjects, and b) developing immunogens and immunization protocols to elicit such antibodies. We employ virology-, immunology-, deep sequencing-, protein-engineering-, and modeling-based approaches.
