Dr. Zwick has distinguished himself in the field of HIV research through his rational approach to trying to solve the problems associated with an HIV vaccine. His method is based on gaining an understanding of the molecular details of the useful antibodies generated to date, and the sites on the virus that the antibodies target a strategy that will be essential to designing improvements to any molecules used in an HIV-1 vaccine.
He has published an extensive number of papers, four of which he was first author on while still a graduate student.
He is currently supported by two NIH grants, and was honored with an Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation Scholarship Award in 2002-2003. Dr. Zwick has proven himself to be dedicated to this very important field, and is known for having opened new areas of investigation due to his research
