Biography

Dr Bhawna is Assistant Professor, Division of Basic Science and Vaccine Research, IHV, University of Maryland, Baltimore, USA. After obtaining DVM and PhD degrees,she worked as research scientist with a focus on viral infectious diseases and therapy. At Cornell University, she designed tools for identification and molecular characterization of new viral pathogens of poultry and identified a new strain of virus circulating in poultry in USA. Her research identified mechanisms of tumor induction by Marek’s Disease Virus, immune responses relevant against tumors and potential vaccine targets. Afterwards, led projects on AIDS pathogenesis and my research identified potential HIV target cells in vagina using immunohistochemistry, confocal microscopy and flow cytometry, and identified immune factors affecting HIV transmission. Currently, her research explores effective vaccine development strategies against HIV and cancers using immunology, molecular biology and bioinformatics methods. A major focus is on examining ways to enhance natural and antibody mediated effector function of immune cells including natural killer cells and gamma delta T cells for improving therapy against diseases including HIV.
