Jean Boyer's Biography

Jean Boyer, Associate Research Professor, UPenn Medical Center

Jean Boyer obtained her Ph.D. from Rutgers University. She is currently a Research Associate Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Boyer has been instrumental in developing DNA vaccines for HIV-1. She was lead author on the Nature Medicine paper that demonstrated DNA vaccines were capable of suppressing HIV-1 replication in the chimpanzee model and she studied the immune responses in the first set of clinical trials assessing HIV-1 DNA vaccines. She has demonstrated, using the non-human primate model, the importance of a strong CD8 proliferative response to suppress HIV-1 replication. And, most recently Dr. Boyer has begun to research the impact of chronic malaria infection on vaccine induced immune responses. Furthermore, Dr. Boyer has served as a director for the Human Immunology Core, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. The core provides immunological assessment of immunotherapeutics and vaccines for infectious diseases and cancer.
