Dr. Zhou Tongqing visited WIV
On Nov. 20th, Dr Zhou Tongqing from NIH (USA) Vaccine Research Center was invited to our institute. He gave us an excellent report titled “From Neutralizing Antibodies to an Effective HIV-1 Vaccine: Structure-Based Approaches” which impressed all the audience.
Dr. Zhou introduced their work which had already been published in Science on Aug. 13th, 2010. His team discovered VRC01 and VRC01 like neutralization antibody from HIV-1 infected patients, and such kind of antibody could inactivated ninety one percent of HIV-1 strains. This great work brought new hope to AIDS vaccine research.
