Putting an end to HIV is hard.
Here at UC Davis, we’re one step closer to finding a cure to HIV. Using revolutionary stem cell research, a team our researchers modified human stem cells with HIV-resistant genes and transplanted these cells to mice. The treated mice developed an immune resistance to HIV no symptomsof the virus were present and it was no longer detectable in their systems. With the FDA recently clearing human clinical trials, a world free from HIV is becoming less of a fantasy and more of a reality.
Thanks to some homegrown UC Davis innovation, we’re progressing to the point where one day AIDS may join smallpox as nothing more than a painful memory.
Tackling one of the world’s deadliest epidemics is hard. Helping support HIV research through giving is an easy way to make a difference.
