Research Activities

We aim to develop novel vaccine candidates for Hepatitis C and HIV and seek to understand mechanisms of viral entry, immune evasion and natural immunity to Hepatitis C.

Techniques/Expertise

Mammalian, insect and bacterial protein expression systems, cell line development, monoclonal antibody production and characterization, single cell B cell isolation and IgG production, evaluation of immune responses to vaccine candidates, virus neutralization assays, protein purification and characterization, structural biology.
