Tony Moody, MD is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Infectious Diseases and the Department of Immunology at Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Moody is the Director of the Laboratory of B cell Immunotechnology at the Duke Human Vaccine Institute (DHVI). Research in the Moody lab is focused on understanding the B cell responses during the earliest stages of HIV infection. The lab has become a resource for human phenotyping, flow characterization, staining and analysis at DHVI.  Dr. Moody is also the Director of the CHAVI DHVI Repository that provides support for the collaborative work occurring at DHVI and with its many collaborators around the world by providing processing, shipping, and inventory support for a wide array of projects. Additionally, Dr. Moody serves as one of the Principal Investigators of the new Duke Collaborative Influenza Vaccine Innovation Centers (CIVICs) where he will conduct basic immunology and virology research to identify potential influenza vaccine candidates.

In addition, the Moody lab has active projects looking at the response to HIV-1, syphilis, and autoimmunity.
