Dr. Rosenberg’s research interests include the mechanisms used by the cellular immune system in HIV-infected individuals who are successful in mounting effective responses against the virus. Further investigation into the function of CD4+ T helper cells in these individuals will hopefully support rationale for further immunotherapeutic interventions and provide insight into vaccine development.
