Manoj Kumar Tripathy, a graduate student at the National Centre for Cell Science, Pune, India working towards his doctoral degree under the guidance of Dr. Debashis Mitra visited Einstein AITRP in October 2007 for 9 months till June 2008. His research project was aimed at continuing the ongoing collaborative research project on the "Gene expression profiling HIV-1 infection: comparative analysis of selective genes in subtype B and C infection and their role in viral pathogenesis and T Cell depletion" and "Aptamers for inhibition of subtype C HIV-1 Nef function" with Dr. Ganjam V. Kalpana and Dr. Vinayaka R. Prasad respectively as US mentors.
