A vaccine is needed to prevent Herpes Simplex Viral infections, which cause encephalitis and neonatal and genital herpes (which increases the acquisition of HIV by three-fold). This project will build on results showing that lipopeptides can stimulate CD8 T cells, required in such vaccines, to broaden coverage of the whole human population.
