We explore novel strategies to prevent and control viral infections such as SARS-CoV-2 &  HIV through a better understanding of the innate and adaptive immune responses during infections.

 

 

 

Current studies focus on

  1. Understand the innate and adaptive immune responses to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection in patients and development of therapies and preventive strategies to COVID-19.
  2. Explore the role of Natural Killer (NK)/Innate Lymphoid Cells (ILC) and innate memory in the HIV vaccines (RV 144 like vaccine studies).
  3. Discovery of novel adjuvants that enhance HIV vaccine efficacy.
  4. Explore the regulatory role of NK/ILCs during HIV pathogenesis and Prevention.
  5. Understanding the immunopathology of HIV/TB, co-infections, and development of therapies and preventive strategies.
