Thesis/Research Topic: The goal of my project is to determine how female genital tract microbial dysbiosis impacts pre-exposure prophylaxis efficacy and HIV susceptibility in women. My research also focuses on the impact mucosal microbial communities have on immune profiles while working on the development of microbiota-based therapies to modulate host immunity and enhance drug effectiveness to improve disease outcomes.
