Community webinar series on HIV cure-related cell and gene therapy
Simon Collins, HIV i-Base
A new series of community monthly webinars on HIV cure research will focus on cell and gene therapy research and will include discussions with leading researchers.
The use of cell and gene therapy against HIV is a promising new cure-related strategy with the potential to target the virus with a limited number of doses.
The series begins in June 2022 and ends in February 2023. Each monthly session will last an hour with Q&A discussions that include community members.
The programme includes many leading researchers.
