Dr. Sujin Lee received her PhD in Viral Immunology from University of Tennessee. Her main research interests are 1) to develop vaccines against respiratory pathogens such as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and human rhinoviruses (RV) by the generation of most efficient protective immune responses, 2) to develop novel antiviral agents for infectious diseases including emerging viruses, 3) to elucidate mechanisms how HIV-1 infected CD4+ T cells and myeloid cells can serve as HIV reservoirs and contribute to HIV-1 persistence utilizing several in vitro models including human CD4+ T cells, human monocyte-derived macrophages, iPSC-derived microglia cells (brain) and transmigration model (lung).
