Correlates of immune protection

During the viral infection, a certain proportion of rare individuals show natural protection against the viruses. The induction of the innate immune mechanisms is not pathogen-specific but depends on interactions between the host cell…

Healthy Aging with HIV

Although early mortality is delayed because of effective combination antiretroviral therapy (cART), people living with HIV (PLWH) need to take medication life-long. The cART has also shifted the spectrum of morbidity towards non-infectious complications such as ….

HIV-1 drug resistance and treatment response

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) has led to a considerable decrease in AIDS mortality. The emergence of the primary and acquired drug resistance mutations (DRM) poses a significant threat to successful antiretroviral therapy (ART) against HIV-infection.

COVID-19 Research

Viruses exploit the host metabolic machinery to meet their biosynthetic demands, making these host pathways potential therapeutic targets. We are interested in understanding how SARS-CoV-2 rewire host cell metabolism to facilitate optimal viral replication that …

About Research Group

The Neogi Research lab aims to identify the molecular mechanism and identify novel biomarkers of natural immune control against viral diseases and immune aging. We aim to identify the components of the immune response that are required for natural immune protection and disease severity that can be translated into the future development of vaccine and antiviral strategies against emerging and re-emerging viruses like human immunodeficiency viruses (HIV), Crimean–Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) viruses, dengue viruses, Zika viruses.

Across the globe, there are 37.9 million persons living with HIV (PLWH). With access to antiretroviral therapy (ART), AIDS can be prevented, but the life expectancy for the PLWH is still shorter than in uninfected persons.They often suffer from age-related maladies which diminish their quality of life.                                                                                       View all
