The group’s main research line is characterization of the immune response to infectious diseases (mainly, but not exclusively, HIV), cancer and autoimmunity. It is currently working on characterizing the humoral response to HIV and SARS-CoV-2, with special emphasis on identifying neutralizing antibodies and studying viral spread, and on the development of vaccines against challenging pathogens (such as HIV, Treponema and SARS-CoV-2), therapeutic antibodies and new diagnostic tools.

Keywords: Neutralizing antibodies, recombinant proteins, humoral response, B cell function vaccines, immunogenicity, SARS-CoV-2
