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

Abraham PinterWith the inability of available HIV-1 vaccines to achieve protection, there is a clear need for the identification of novel vaccine targets and approaches. A key focus of the work of Dr. Pinter's lab is understanding the basis for the inability of the immune system to control HIV, and identification of new targets and vaccine approaches that may be able to overcome these limitations. The role of conformational masking towards neutralization resistance is being analyzed in detail, with a focus on specific determinants that contribute to masking and identification of mutations that can rPublic Health Research Institute
Gloria RodriguezThe main focus of the studies in my laboratory is the role of metal homeostasis in host-pathogen interactions. I am particularly interested in the effects of metal ion restriction resulting from nutritional immunity on the pathogenesis of M. tuberculosis (Mtb). My early training in bacteriology, cell biology and immunology, combined with over 25 years in the mycobacterial field, has given me the right foundation to study the biology of the tuberculous bacillus and the complex interplay between Mtb and its host. My group has significantly contributed to the current understanding of thPublic Health Research Institute
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
