Research Interests

Correlates of protective immunity for emerging infectious diseases (EID) and vaccine development; mainly focusing on HIV and influenza A infection in humans, aiming to learn which type(s) of immune responses provide protective immunity and applying this knowledge to the development of powerful immunotherapies as well as effective vaccines. Given that immune correlates of protection are multi-factorial in nature, the spectrum of our research covers both innate and adaptive immune responses at the molecular, cellular and population levels.
