Abstract

A HIV vaccine remains elusive. Although killer T cell immunity can provide partial protection from HIV disease, we don't know the best type of killer T cells to induce by vaccination. This project compares multiple HIV vaccine strategies in macaques. We will carefully study the quality of killer T cell immunity induced using novel and cutting-edge assays. We will identify the requirements for effective killer T cell immunity to HIV.
