HIV Research: Microsoft Researchers Seeking Solutions in Africa

More than 1.8 million people die of HIV-related causes each year—approximately 5,000 deaths per day. HIV is a particularly significant threat in the sub-Saharan region of Africa. Researchers in South Africa and Boston are working with Microsoft Research to fight HIV. The effort is led by Bruce Walker and David Heckerman. The researchers are cataloging fragments of HIV that are vulnerable to attack by the immune system.
