Dr. Barry has characterized the natural history of RhCMV infection in colony macaques, and his laboratory develops key reagents and techniques to investigate molecular, virological, and immunological parameters of animals infected with this virus. He is evaluating the pathogenic potential of modified RhCMV-based SIV vaccine vectors. In addition, he is conducting a comprehensive analysis of maturation of the macaque immune system.
