AIDS Vaccine May Be Far Off, But Path To It Is Getting Clearer

In his latest Washington Post opinion piece, columnist Michael Gerson highlights scientific efforts to create an AIDS vaccine, noting the work of researchers at the Vaccine Research Center.

“In the short and medium terms, neither injected antibodies nor a vaccine will be a substitute for other forms of AIDS prevention. … But researchers at NIH know that an effective vaccine would be a decisive defeat for their wily enemy,” he writes. “The day that work is finished remains distant. But now, at least, there is a path to the moon,” Gerson concludes (7/4).
