HIV/AIDS video for World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day seems like a good time to revisit a video we made this year featuring CIRM board member Jeff Sheehy, who is a long-time advocate for HIV/AIDS research:

CIRM is funding two teams of researchers working on different approaches to treating HIV/AIDS (one at UCLA and one at City of Hope). Both involve replacing a person's blood-forming system with cells that are resistant to infection.

For more background on the work, you can watch a Spotlight on HIV/AIDS by one of the disease team leaders, John Zaia of City of Hope.

All of these resources are available on our HIV/AIDS disease page, along with information about the grants we fund that target HIV/AIDS.

Here's hoping that on this day next year we'll be able to talk about progress being made by the two outstanding teams of researchers working to cure this devastating disease.
