Chan Phetsouphanh

Post-doctoral Fellow

My research involves T cell immunology, with particular focus on the role that T cells play during infection, autoimmunity and cancer.

I received my PhD from the University of New South Wales (Australia) in 2014. My PhD thesis focused on the characterisation of antigen-specific CD4+ T cell responses during HIV-1 infection. My postdoctoral work at The Peter Medawar Building for Pathogen Research (2015-2019) involved the elucidation of non-conventional T cell subsets, that is Mucosal Associated Invariant T cells (MAITs) and CD4+ Cytotoxic T cells during HIV-1 infection. This work involved examination of their cytolytic function, their response to antiretroviral therapy and their antiviral role in the control of the HIV reservoir. I have recently joined Xin Lu’s group at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research.
