Immunobiology of HIV
Our Unit focuses on the study of both mucosal and systemic correlates of HIV protection in order to define the structure-immunogenicity applied to the host-virus relationship. The evidence of the existence of subjects who, despite multiple exposures to HIV-1, remain seronegative (referred to as ESN) opens on the possibility that some of these subjects may be "spontaneously vaccinated/cured" and so the study of their antiviral response may reveal resistance mechanisms that could be translated in new strategies against HIV transmission.
