Jul 21, 2010

In light of President Obama’s new HIV/AIDS strategy, today we’re talking with a trio of local researchers, including Nobel Prize winning Caltech AIDS researcher Dr. David Baltimore, about new, cutting edge work being using stem cells and gene therapy to treat – and possibly one day cure – HIV/AIDS. This research focuses on engineering blood producing stems cells to resist HIV or takes super-charged HIV antibodies and puts them into stem cells which then target and attack HIV. Are engineered stem cells the answer to curing HIV?
