Soyeon KimMy research interests are aimed at mitigating the public health impact of the HIV/AIDS and the resulting resurgent tuberculosis (TB) epidemics. I have participated in research to evaluate methods of prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, co-infections with HIV, prevention and treatment of TB, and TB diagnostics. Much of my research in has been conducted in developing countries, including Thailand, Botswana, and South Africa. Working overseas has also spurred my interest in research capacity building in resource limited countries where infectious diseases are more prevalent.Department of Preventive Medicine & Community Health

Hassan SafiThe long term of my research is to develop new vaccine against tuberculosis. I am using genetic tools as well as exposure to different chemicals as my model to create attenuated strains with strong immunogenic response and, therefore, efficient protection against tuberculosis. A ONE VACCINE with protection against all the strain types is the key for tuberculosis eradication. Department of Medicine
