(Genetics) from the McGill University, a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology from Duke University and post doctoral fellowships in Rheumatology and Immunology from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and in Immunology from the University of Toronto. Dr. Bernard’s research program aims to understand the host responses that underlie the persistent seronegativity of certain individuals despite high level HIV exposure and the slow disease progression observed in a subset of HIV infected persons. She has played a founding role in establishing the Canadian Cohort of HIV+ Slow Progressors. Her current interests involve studying innate responses and the interaction of these with the adaptive arm on the immune response that lead to protective immunity to HIV. Dr. Bernard’s research is funded by operating grants from the Canadian Institute for Health Research and infrastructure grants from the Fonds de Recherche du Québec–Santé.
