Student Spotlight

Aiding HIV Vaccine Research—Sean O’Keefe received a 2017 Alpha Omega Alpha Carolyn L. Kuckstein Student Research Fellowship, which supports research by a medical student for a minimum of eight to ten weeks, up to two years. The fellowship will fund Mr. O’Keefe’s participation in immunobiology research aimed at developing a vaccine against HIV, which causes AIDS—a syndrome that afflicts more than 1 million Americans and currently has no cure. Using mice, Mr. O’Keefe will assess their response to virus infections based on the specific antibodies they produce. This information could prove helpful in the vaccine development and ultimately lay the ground work for future research demonstrating the efficacy of a vaccine.  Mr. O’Keefe, who is a rising second-year medical student, is conducting his studies with supervision from Dr. William Jacobs and Dr. Betsy Herold.
