Awarded her PhD at Monash University, Professor Tachedjian received an NHMRC CJ Martin Fellowship to undertake postdoctoral studies at Columbia University in New York with Professor Stephen Goff on retroviral replication.
In 2002, Professor Tachedjian was recruited to Burnet Institute. She was awarded an NHMRC RD Wright Career Development Award in 2003 and an NHMRC Senior Research Fellowship’s in 2009 and in 2017.
A virologist combining interdisciplinary basic, translational and clinical research to identify and develop effective drug-based strategies to prevent and control emerging pathogens including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). She has made major contributions to HIV reverse transcriptase, antivirals, drug resistance and HIV prevention research. She was awarded the Fenner Prize in 2012 by the Australian Society for Microbiology for her distinguished contributions to research in Microbiology.
Her current areas of interest include discovering a new HIV drug class using fragment-based drug design and understanding the role of the genital microbiota and their metabolites on adverse sexual (e.g. HIV) and reproductive health outcomes. She also has an interest in bat retroviruses and restriction factors.
Major research findings include discovering that a metabolite produced by optimal vaginal microbiota has potent HIV virucidal activity and immune modulatory effects on cervicovaginal epithelial cells that could explain in part why optimal vaginal lactobacilli are associated with decreased susceptibility to HIV (US Patent awarded in 2017).
Discovered new building blocks for drugs that target the HIV reverse transcriptase (RT) by mechanisms distinct to antiretrovirals used for HIV treatment and prevention as well as mutations in HIV RT that confer resistance to antiretroviral drugs which are incorporated in genotyping algorithms for predicting HIV drug resistance.
Played major roles in the preclinical development of microbicides to prevent the sexual transmission of HIV and the completion of a phase I clinical study (SPL7013-003) to determine the retention of the dendrimer microbicide VivaGel after vaginal dosing in healthy women.
Discovered that bats, which represent one of three significant reservoirs for deadly zoonotic viruses, encode APOBEC3, a major class of intrinsic antiviral genes, that are the most numerous and diverse of any mammal reported to date.
She developed a yeast two-hybrid assay for studying the interaction between the two subunits of the RT enzyme, which was patented. This led to the discovery that potent nonnucleoside RT inhibitors (NNRTIs) enhance RT subunit interaction and can unexpectedly affect the late stages of HIV replication.
