Development of an effective HIV/AIDS vaccine and new drugs to treat established disease remain an urgent and pressing need. To conquer the enormous challenge demands a far better understanding of the biology of the virus, its interaction with infected cells, and the response of the immune system, than is currently at our disposal.
This web focus presents a selection of recent research papers in Nature that advance our knowledge in this regard. It also includes a Feature highlighting the expanding HIV epidemic in China, a Review article covering the challenges in vaccine development, and a Commentary calling for better communication and cooperation between vaccinologists, virologists and experts in innate anti-viral immune responses. We hope you will find it helpful.
