    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in the functional immunity of HIV+ children receiving HAART with respect to the innate immune system as well as T cell activity. It has been shown that HIV+ children on HAART have waning humoral response over time to immunizations despite numerical immune reconstitution. My hypothesis is that HIV+ on HAART demonstrate functional immune abnormalities despite previous antigen exposure and that may require specific vaccine strategies in order to achieve long-term protection.
