This will be an opportunity to join one of the few programs anywhere with direct clinical translation from the bench to the bedside in gene therapies, including our own GMP cell manufacturing facility.

The lab is investigating means to improve T cell function, to generate resistance to immune suppressive mechanisms, and to maintain immune surveillance against reactivating latent HIV-infected cells as needed for a “functional cure.” We are presently with NIH funding to transition a new generation of anti-HIV immune therapy from the lab into the clinic, with Phase I/II human clinical trials planned in two years.

We are seeking highly motivated, results-oriented individual with leadership qualities and experience in HIV research to join this fast-moving project. The successful candidate will have opportunities to participate in both basic and clinical translational research, seeing the results of his/her efforts applied to help HIV patients to overcome their disease.

Subjects of research in the lab:

  • T cell receptor engineering
  • Co-stimulation engineering
  • Signal transduction and transcriptional regulation
  • T cell activation and anti-suppression strategies
  • Directed T cell trafficking
  • Retroviral vectorology
  • Murine and primate HIV animal models
  • Human Phase I/II clinical trials

Of particular interest are candidates with experience in:

  • HIV biology
  • T cell signaling pathways
  • Transcriptional regulation
  • Treg and T cell suppressive mechanisms
  • T cell trafficking
  • Cytokine and chemokine biology
  • Real-time PCR

But candidates will be considered from a broad range of backgrounds.
