Texas Biomedical Research Institute scientist creates a defense-in-depth strategy for HIV vaccine development
Claiming more than 34 million lives, the AIDS epidemic is the third worst disease outbreak in human history preceded only by the Black Death in the 14th century and Spanish Flu in 1918. thanks to decades of research, HIV/AIDS is no longer a death sentence, but both a vaccine and a cure allude researchers.
Dr. Ruth Ruprecht, Scientist and Director of Texas Biomed’s AIDS program, recently penned an article for Pan European Networks Science & Technology magazine that highlights her lab’s vaccine development strategy. Her defense-in-depth strategy aims to create a three-pronged approach to defeat the HIV virus that causes AIDS at multiple levels, including the mucosal barriers, mucosal tissue and in the circulation system throughout the body. Read more about her vaccine development work in the Pan European Network article.
