Sandra Springer, MD is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Department of Internal Medicine, section of Infectious Diseases at the Yale School of Medicine. She is Board-Certified in Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases and Addiction Medicine. Dr. Springer has significant research experience with adherence interventions for HIV-infected drug and alcohol dependent persons. She was a recipient of a NIDA-funded K23 mentored career development award, during which she evaluated the use of medication assisted treatment (MAT) to prevent relapse to opioid use as a conduit to care among HIV-infected opioid dependent released prisoners. She developed the first protocol to use buprenorphine as relapse prevention for opioid dependent HIV+ prisoners on day of release and has published these findings that serve as proof of concept that MAT can be effective in maintaining HIV+ released prisoners HIV clinical outcomes. She also has expertise in supervising RCTs by serving as medical director and co-investigator for multiple RCTs including DAART adherence interventions for IDUs and HIV+ released prisoners. She also has considerable clinical and research experience with the use of extended-release naltrexone and has been awarded an R01 from NIAAA as Principal Investigator to evaluate its use to prevent relapse to alcohol use among HIV infected alcohol dependent prisoners transitioning to the community, and from NIDA as PI as part of the Seek Test Treat and Retain initiative to evaluate its use to prevent relapse to opioid use among opioid dependent released criminal justice populations as a means to maintain HIV treatment outcomes. She is also a co-investigator on an R01 from NIDA with Dr. Altice evaluating the use of buprenorphine as linkage to HIV testing and conduit to care for opioid dependent persons in Washington D.C. She has recently received a K02 independent scientist award from NIDA as well. Dr. Springer has expertise in the development and implementation of medication-assisted-therapy interventions involving HIV+, drug and alcohol dependent persons involved in the criminal justice setting.

Emory University
USA

Biography :

Dr. Venkateswarlu Chamcha trained as molecular virologist at National Institute of Virology, India and received a PhD degree for developing a vaccine for Chandipura viral encephalitis disease in 2010. He has very good knowledge in developing vaccines for various viral diseases and testing or conducting various vaccine trials in animal models such as Mice, Rabbits, Guinea pigs and in Rhesus macaques. Being a postdoctoral fellow at Emory University's Yerkes National Primate Research Center since 2010, he is working extensively on HIV vaccine development by using a probiotics organism i.e. lactococcus lactis. This vaccine modality is one of the novel approaches and gave very interesting results and Dr. Chamcha is one of the key people in developing this project. His studies in mice and Nonhuman primates demonstrated that a recombinant L.lactis generates good vaccine specific immune responses targeted mainly in the gut of these animals. Other aspects of his studies involved are conducting some efficacy studies using DNA prime and MVA boost vaccine modalities and understanding the immune correlates of these vaccine mediated immunity and protection to SIV infection. Currently these vaccine modalities have been tested in human clinical trials for HIV vaccine in USA.
