Research and Project Interests

  • For more than 16 years, I have been fascinated by lentiviruses. I started working with Caprine Arthritis and Encephalitis virus and moved on to SIV, SHIV and HIV. My initial focus was to understand the role of primate lentiviral accessory genes on their pathogenicity using SHIV-macaque model. My experience was extended to research the development of a vaccine for HIV/AIDS. The current research focus in my lab is to test adjuvant activity of certain biomolecules to potentiate DNA vaccines for AIDS.
