Research Interests

Prevention of MTCT of HIV-1 provides an excellent model to identify correlates of protection from infection. We are examining placental antigen presenting cells in HIV-1-exposed and unexposed newborns. The ability of HIV-1 to replicate in these cells will be assessed in a tissue culture model and innate antiviral molecules that limit replication will be defined.
