Kevin John Selva

Dr Selva is a postdoc in the Chung Lab, DMI, PDI. He began his career as a research officer at the Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI) and A*STAR studying inflammatory profiles in tears, occular wound healing, and the immune evasion of NK cells in adenovirus-induced epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC) and dengue. He then completed his PhD in the Kent Lab, Melbourne, working on mucosal antibody responses against HIV and the immunosuppressive effects of seminal plasma against cellular responses (NK cells, T cells, monocytes, neutrophils). Joining the Chung lab in 2019, he has established custom bead-based multiplex arrays and various cell-based assays to study mucosal and sera antibody responses against HIV, TB and COVID-19.

  • Looking to collaborate?

    I am looking for sera and/or mucosal samples (tears, saliva, semen, vaginal, rectal) with which we could collaborate to study inflammatory/suppressive effects on cellular responses during viral/bacterial infection.
