Meet Rajeev, a Friendly Rectal Microbicide Advocate

Rajeev Kumar Jain
Bhopal, India

Rajeev Kumar Jain is from Bhopal in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. He received his PhD from the Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI) in Lucknow, India and presently resides there. He is currently job hunting for a postdoctoral position in branches related to microbicide development.

Rajeev first became involved with IRMA after attending the Microbicides 2008 conference held in New Delhi at the end of February 2008. He believes that rectal microbicides are an important priority with regards to the AIDS agenda because HIV infection via unprotected anal sex is a very serious concern. Accordingly, he feels that every person related to IRMA should try as best they can to find out measures to prevent HIV transmission. Having done extensive research in fields related to microbicides and spermicides, Rajeev has had numerous publications with regards to topical prophylactic contraceptives and hopes to continue on the path to discovering the ideal topical HIV prevention agent.

When he is not in the laboratory, Rajeev enjoys reading, watching TV, and keeping up with the news.
