Curtis Cai is undertaking his PhD studies in the Viral Immunology Systems Program after first joining in 2016 as an honours student. His project seeks to understand how populations of CD8 T cells develop and differentiate in the context of Hepatitis C Virus infection. He utilises single cell technologies to unravel how individual cells from complex populations change over time. Findings from this project will inform potential Hepatitis C Virus vaccines by characterising successful CD8 T cell responses and contribute to our knowledge of the basic biology that underpins emerging immunotherapies as they move from the laboratory bench and into the clinic.
