HIV transmission, immunity and vaccine development

Seminar/Forum

HIV transmission, immunity and vaccine development

Professor Nancy Haigwood is an international leader in the study of HIV Envelope glycoprotein (Env) and neutralizing antibodies (NAbs) directed against HIV Env. Nancy will present her insights into the role of HIV Env and NAbs in HIV transmission, including mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV, and in HIV vaccine development. Her nonhuman primate (NHP) models show how passive treatment with NAbs (IgG) during acute infection accelerate the development of effective NAbs.
