Immunologic correlates of EBV containment in HIV infected infants

Funding: CFAR, University of Washington
PI: Jennifer Slyker
Time Period: 11/01/2013-10/31/2015

We will investigate the role of EBV-specific T cell responses, B cell activation, and maternal antibodies in the containment of EBV infection in HIV-infected infants. Our findings will have relevance for EBV vaccine design, understanding EBV pathogenesis, and devising new interventions to prevent EBV-related diseases in HIV-infected individuals.
