Congratulations to professor Heather Desaire who was recently awarded a $1.38 million R01 grant from National Institute of Health for the project grant titled "Characterization of PTMs on Env to support HIV vaccine development."This research will investigate a group of HIV vaccine candidates and the proteins that make up those candidates. The project could help vaccine developers answer several critical questions, including identifying cell lines in which specific proteins should be expressed and why particular vaccine candidates have especially advantageous properties, such as the ability to bind tightly to desirable antibodies.
