The CAVD established this monthly recognition to honor young and early career investigators who have made significant contributions to HIV vaccine research conducted within the CAVD. Nominated by Dr. Norman Letvin of Harvard University, Dr. Lee works on the Letvin Vaccine Discovery Consortia to develop novel mycobacterial vectors that can enhance the immunogenicity of potential HIV vaccines. Dr. Lee joined the Duke Human Vaccine Institute in 2007 and is currently the Director of the Laboratory of Mycobacteriology. At DHVI, the Lee lab is working to develop safer and more effective tuberculosis vaccines and immunotherapeutics using recombinant mycobacterial vectors.
