Prof. R.W. Sanders PhD (HIV vaccine research aimed at the induction of neutralizing antibodies)

We study the HIV-1 envelope protein complex (Env), the protein that is required for the induction of humoral immunity. Specifically we modify the protein in order to improve the induction of neutralizing antibodies.
