Research Interests

Research in Dr. Kozlowski's laboratory is primarily focused on the identification of IgA antibody responses that prevent HIV infection. HIV vaccines that induce these antibodies in secretions could prevent HIV transmission at mucosal surfaces or the establishment of viral reservoirs in mucosal tissues.   Studies in the lab involve measuring the specificity and function of HIV-specific IgA generated in HIV-infected individuals and in animals immunized with different vaccines.
