John Zaunders is a Senior Scientist at St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney and has studied the effect of HIV-1 infection on CD4 and CD8 T cell subsets, by flow cytometry, for over 20 years. This has included many studies on immune reconstitution in subjects commencing antiretroviral therapy, long-term non-progressors, and the effect of other viral infections in healthy controls. His main interest has been to identify HIV-specific CD4 T cells during primary HIV-1 infection as activated CCR5+ CD4 T cells.
