Current HIV/AIDS Research Activities:

  • Examining CD8+ T cell immune responses against opportunistic infections like Toxoplasma gondii and Encephalitozoon cuniculi.
  • We have reported that CD8+ T cell response is critical for the protection against these pathogens.
  • Information related to the development and maintenance of long term CD8+ T cell response will help to develop immunotherapeutic agents against these infections.
