Dr. Frelinger's research is focused on the production of antigen specific T-cells. While much of the work has been directed at virus and bacterial antigens, he also used similar approaches to inform immunotherapy in cancer. Dr. Frelinger published a series of papers on altered peptide ligand from an observation in HIV through its confirmation with the breast tumor epitope Her2/neu in humanized mice and then a clinical trial. He has been and continues to move basic science from the fundamental to the practical.

Dr. Frelinger was President of The American Association of Immunologists from 2010 to 2011 and served as an AAI Council member from 2005 to 2010. He was awarded the AAI Distinguished Service Award in 2003.
