Dr. Nehete's research program is translational and directly applicable to improvement of human health using nonhuman primates as a model. His research program in cellular immunology and vaccine development includes a range of diversified projects in which he actively collaborates with faculty from within the department and institution and outside of the institution. Dr. Nehete's research focuses on mucosal immune responses and identifying suitable adjuvants for use in vaccine/therapeutics against infectious agents such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), Polyomavirus and Zika virus. His research interest is using a novel nanochannel system for sustained delivery and studying of innate immunity stimulation via TLR9 on cerebral amyloid angioplasty using nonhuman primates. Dr. Nehete has over twenty years of experience working in the area of vaccine development employing various animal models including nonhuman primate models.
