On World AIDS Day today, Dec. 1, we share some stories that highlight critical basic HIV research with nonhuman primates and the progress toward a vaccine and other treatments:
Nov. 8, 2020: New macaque model for exploring blood cancer, HIV treatments
(Experimental Hematology study published by WNPRC, School of Medicine and Public Health, and Carbone Cancer Center researchers at UW–Madison)
Dec. 1, 2019: The new era of living with AIDS
Jan. 31, 2019: AIDS vaccine using engineered herpesvirus works in monkeys
Dec. 1, 2018: World AIDS Day: NPRC research improving lives
Sept. 28. 2018: New macaque model to study pathology of TB in AIDS patients
We also note in our Nov. 24, 2020 NPRC blog that the rapid pace of discovery leading to our current COVID-19 vaccine candidates resulted greatly from National Primate Research Center researchers and their collaborators applying their expertise in fighting other viruses, especially HIV/AIDS.
