Dr. Rupert Kaul is a full professor and Division Director, Division of Infectious Diseases, University of Toronto, and division head, Infectious Diseases, at the University Health Network/Mount Sinai Hospital. Dr. Kaul became interested in HIV research soon after completing his infectious disease clinical training. For his initial research exposure, Dr. Kaul travelled to Nairobi where he studied a population of HIV resistant sex workers in Nairobi under the supervision of Dr. Frank Plummer from Winnipeg, and the linkage between sexually transmitted disease prevention and HIV in a separate cohort with Dr. Stephen Moses. Today, Dr. Kaul's research investigates the immune correlates of HIV susceptibility and transmission in cohorts of people from Canada, Uganda and Kenya.
