Research Summary

My research focuses on applied and translational immunology with the goal of developing and characterizing novel gene based vaccines and therapies against infectious agents and cancer. Previous funded work has centered on vaccine development against neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimers Disease as well as the development of vaccines and immunotherapeutics against HIV. Current research emphasis is centering on methods for delivering novel gene and peptide based therapies against cancer Basic molecular and immunological methods are being used in the lab to pursue these goals
