For the past 8 years I have been studying clinical diagnostics and biomarkers of immunity and immunopathology. One particular interest of my research is to identify cytokines, chemokines and other biomarkers that may be associated with inflammation. My background in public health and immunology has given me extensive knowledge of immune responses to a variety of diseases. As the Director of the Core Immunology Laboratory, I have focused on biomarker discovery using low volume, high throughput immune assays to measure cytokines, chemokines, growth factors and other biomarkers of immune response or pathology in a number of studies ranging from HIV, HCV, HBV vaccine breakthrough, Chagas, West Nile Virus, cardiovascular disease, neuropathology and many other areas.
My interests include: HIV, cancer immunology, malaria, HCV, HBV, virus, infectious diseases, cellular immunology, humoral immunity, cytokines, memory immune responses, biomarkers, HIV co-morbidity, HIV associated neurocognitive dysfunction (HAND), cross-sectional HIV incidence, HIV Cure, HCV elimination, vaccines, Trypanosoma cruzi, Chagas
