We are primarily focuses on understanding how adaptive immune responses can prevent or eliminate AIDS virus infections through the use of vaccines or novel cure strategies. Additionally, we are developing platforms to identify genomic amino acid polymorphisms or mutations that lead to minor histocompatibility antigens or tumor neoantigens respectively. Lastly, we are developing tools to isolate monoclonal antibodies from non-human primates. These studies incorporate aspects of immunology, virology, molecular biology, and genomics. Our goal is to identify novel approaches to attack infected or diseased cells that contributes to the fight against important human and veterinary diseases.
