HIVR4P 2018 Co-chair Georgia Tomaras of Duke University Medical Center is immersed in efforts to identify immune correlates of protection for preventive vaccines and identify mechanisms for inhibiting pathogens such as HIV. As Duke’s director of research, she also works to equip early career scientists to work across multiple disciplines including vaccine immunology, clinical research, engineering, biostatistics/bioinformatics and global health. We asked Dr. Tomaras for her take on the search for an HIV vaccine, why she chooses to focus on mentoring young researchers and what she’s looking forward to at HIVR4P 2018.
