                 MUCOSAL SAMPLING AND IMMUNOLOGY TRAINING

                                18th-20th JANUARY 2016

                KAVI INSTITUTUE OF CLINICAL RESEARCH (KAVI-ICR)

 

KAVI-ICR conducted a mucosal sampling and immunology training from the

18th-22nd January 2016 held at KAVI-ICR research laboratory. The participants

were drawn from laboratory scientist from India.

 

Transmission of HIV-1 occurs predominantly across the genital mucosa during

sexual intercourse. Consequently there is a growing interest in understanding

host mucosal responses to HIV-1 during infection, and in assessing protective

mucosal responses during microbicide and HIV vaccine trials. It is thus

necessary to obtain samples from mucosal surfaces for immunological analysis

in a standardized and reproducible manner, ensuring comparable data across

studies and research centers. KAVI-ICR developed a 5-day hands-on training

program on the collection and processing of mucosal samples, and transferred the

techniques to research staff from India.
