Marie-Claire Gauduin, Ph.D.
Associate Professor | Disease Intervention & Prevention
Southwest National Primate Research Center
Dr. Marie-Claire Gauduin has more than 25 years of experience in HIV/AIDS research and medical microbiology. She has been working extensively on HIV and the development of novel vaccine strategies using the non-human primate model for AIDS. In her work, she uses epithelial stem cells and weakened recombinant papillomavirus as vaccine- vectors to protect against multiple low-dose mucosal challenges. Dr. Gauduin is also developing a neonatal model for tuberculosis to study HIV/TB co-infection in pediatric AIDS.
Her specific research interests are:
- Early events of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) transmission in a macaque model
- Host immune responses to infectious diseases
- Early virus-specific T cell responses in neonates
- Tuberculosis/SIV coinfection in pediatric AIDS
