Prabhu Arunachalam received his Ph.D. in India and subsequently trained with Prof. Bali Pulendran at Stanford University. Prabhu’s research at the intersection of immunology and vaccinology has defined cooperative immune mechanisms by which the innate and adaptive arms of the immune system synergize to induce durable protection against HIV and SARS-CoV-2 infection. His pioneering work during the COVID-19 pandemic identified human innate immune signatures of SARS-CoV-2 infection and vaccination using a systems immunology approach and contributed to the clinical development of two adjuvanted subunit vaccines
