Dr. Kwofie’s academic research interest had been on the Pathogenesis of HIV, specifically in the area of using the Simian and Human Immunodeficiency (SHIV) Chimeric Viruses and Rhesus Macaque Monkey models in the development of HIV vaccine. More specifically in the area of delineating the mechanisms and factors that enable SHIV (HIV) to persist and replicate to high titers in the face of sometimes robust host immune response and also whether Cytokines and Chemokines can be used to distinguish between the pathogenicities of SHIVs (HIVs).
