HIV Vaccine could be tested in humans sooner than expected


Researchers from The Scripps Research Institution (TSRI), Harvard, MIT and other institutions made ground-breaking discoveries that has led to a HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) vaccine that could be tested in humans in as little as 2 years. This vaccine, administered via several injections over weeks to months, works by providing man-made molecules that mimic specific parts of the virus structure to gradually train the immune system to make broadly neutralizing antibodies against HIV.
