Lecture: Infectious Cures: Hijacking Viruses to Overcome Disease

Brilliant!ScienceWe've made substantial progress in the fight against HIV/AIDS over the past three decades, but the epidemic continues to ravage humankind. Everywhere, viruses such as HIV compete with their hosts -- building resistance to the latest therapies in order to maintain their deadly hold on our species. What if we could turn HIV on its head by hijacking the very virus that ravages the body, and transforming it into a cure? Join Dr. Leor Weinberger, associate investigator at Gladstone Institutes, as he reveals his approach to halting the global AIDS epidemic. This lecture is hosted by Dr. Shannon Bennett, associate curator of microbiology at the California Academy of Sciences.
