Ogunshola is interested in investigating the induction of adaptive immunity against HIV. His study is focused on understanding how CD8 T cells are primed during early HIV infection and how the primed CD8 T cells can be sustained over the course of infection. The goal of his study is to identify immune parameters that can be harnessed to sustain T cell immunity against HIV infection, which can be translational to the development of a T cell based vaccine.
