Research Summary

I am interested in antibody responses to HIV infection. I will be studying the effects of passively-transferred maternal antibodies on mother-to-child transmission of HIV and infant mortality. I also hope to map the epitopes of these maternal antibodies and determine whether targeting certain epitopes is correlated with protection from mother-to-child transmission.
