My laboratory has established a research program that focuses on HIV immunology.  The program is supported by research funds from NIH, VA, and non-federal grants.  The laboratory has been pursuing a number of research projects with the common goal of understanding better HIV envelope-mediated immunity and pathogenesis in order to design more effective prophylactic and therapeutic measures against HIV.  The key projects currently active in the lab are as follows:

1)                  Use of immune complexes as a vaccine strategy to elicit effective antibody and helper CD4 T cell responses against HIV.

2)                  Evaluation of HIV neutralization by antibodies and biologic parameters influencing virus-neutralizing activities

3)                  Modulation of HIV-1 envelope antigenicity and immunogenicity by glycosylation and antibodies

4)                  HIV envelope-induced virological synapse and signaling

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology companies, and other outside entities to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their outside financial relationships.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
