Dr. Aneela Javed is working as Assistant professor at ASAB (NUST) since March 2012. She received her Masters and M.Phil degree from the department of Molecular biology/Biochemistry Quaid-e-Azam University Islamabad in 2005 and 2007 respectively. She was awarded Higher Education Commission (HEC) overseas scholarship in 2008 and joined German Primate Center, Georg August University, Germany for her PhD research. Her work focused on identification of CD8 T cell secreted antiviral factors conferring long term survival in HIV infected elite controllers using SIV infected Rhesus Macaque as animal model.
Long term non progressors provide us a unique opportunity to explore the natural ways of combating HIV. Research will focus on exploring the immunological responses against HIV and discovery of novel viral inhibitory factors, with special emphasis on T cell responses in long term non-progressors. Other interests include miRNA and genetic studies with reference to HIV.
