Biosketch


Dr. Lenine Liebenberg, Ph.D. is a Research Associate at the CAPRISA Mucosal Immunology Laboratory. Dr Liebenberg’s combined academic training in medical virology, microbiology, genetics, immunology, and molecular and cellular biology contribute to her research in understanding immune responses at the human genital mucosa. She has documented methods to improve genital cell isolation from men and women, methods to facilitate genital cellular immune responses in multicentre studies, and has characterised genital and systemic immune parameters facilitating HIV infection, viral shedding and HIV transmission. Her current interests centre on investigating cytokine and cellular biomarkers of genital immune activation and inflammation, their various causes and the consequences to the risk of HIV acquisition and transmission.
