The Finkel Prize Seminar: HIV-1 vaccine development: Strategies for providing effective killer T cell immune soldiers to help win the battle of HIV

Mr Danushka Wijesundara, Molecular Mucosal Vaccine Immunology Group, Department of Immunology, The John Curtin School of Medical Research, ANU
HIV-1 vaccine development has been met with many obstacles and failures. In our laboratory we have now developed a new generation of HIV vaccines that offer good hope for the future.
In this presentation, I aim to discuss how developing a fundamental understanding regarding  the regulation of anti-viral  killer T cell immunity is important in  developing better quality HIV-1 vaccines for the future.

The Finkel Prize, endowed by Drs Alan and Elizabeth Finkel, is awarded every second year in recognition of research at The John Curtin School of Medical Research which will lead to improvements in health in developing countries.

A morning tea will be held at 10.30 in the foyer before the seminar.
