Dr. Aid-Boudries is an Assistant professor of Medicine at the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research (CVVR). She received her Ph.D. in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics from the Center for Immunology and Cancer at the University of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. At CVVR, her research focuses on developing computational pipelines and machine learning-based approaches (ML/AI) to investigate OMICS signatures associated with disease pathogenesis, baseline and post-vaccination predictor biomarkers of vaccines immunogenicity, and durability. Dr. Boudries is also exploring disease pathogenesis through epigenetics profiling, with a keen interest in decoding the epigenetics determinant of HIV integration and the latent HIV reservoir maintenance and persistence.
