Dr. Seth Pincus is a professor in MSU’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Clinical Professor in the department of pediatrics at the University of Washington. His talk will focus on the current state of research on HIV infection, specifically why we are able to prevent AIDS from developing in HIV-infected individuals but cannot yet cure the infection. Consequently, HIV patients must take expensive and toxic antiviral drugs for the rest of their lives and run the risk of developing drug-resistant HIV.
In his talk “Can HIV infection be cured?” he will discuss how HIV persists and different approaches to a cure. He will include consideration of cellular and gene therapies but will focus on antibody therapeutics including his own work with anti-HIV immunoconjugates. He will conclude by considering whether any of this has relevance for biofilms.
