Ian Oyaro is a veterinary surgeon with a Masters in Microbiology. He has worked on sequencing and proteomic based techniques in a quest to improve the diagnosis of acute non-traumatic coma at the Kenyan coast. Additionally, he has been involved in protocol optimisation studies for disease proteomics.
Oyaro is interested in evaluating the role of early HIV-specific T and B cell interactions in predetermining downstream antibody function. The determination of early immunological correlates that influence the development of broadly neutralising and non-neutralising antibodies in HIV may suggest coherent approaches for successful vaccine development.
