Dr. Sui received her Ph.D. in pathology at the Beijing Institute of Basic Medical Sciences in 1998. She joined the Vaccine Branch, NCI, in 2008 as a staff scientist after completion of her first postdoctoral training positions in Dr. Opendra Narayan's lab at the University of Kansas Medical Center (2002-2005), and a second postdoctoral fellowship in Dr. Todd Reinhart's lab at University of Pittsburgh (2005-2008).


Dr. Sui's research interests focus on studying the innate and adaptive immunological mechanisms of human immunodeficiency virus/simian immunodeficiency virus (HIV/SIV) vaccine-induced control of HIV mucosal transmission using SIV/SHIV-macaque models. In addition, she is interested in exploring new technologies and novel molecular adjuvants to help prevent mucosal HIV-1 transmission.
