From Blackboard to Bedside: How Theory Helped Change the Outcome of HIV Infection
Thursday, April 6, 2017
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm, Fowler - Lecture/Classroom - A103B - Lenart Auditorium
UCLA Biological Physics Public Lecture
See below for additional information.
Free and open to the public.
The Center for Biological Physics and the Bhaumik Institute for Theoretical Physics present a public lecture by Dr. Alan Perelson (Los Alamos National Laboratory).
Dr. Perelson’s theoretical work on HIV replication has changed the way we think about the infection and lead to the creation of modern therapies that converted HIV from a death sentence into a manageable, chronic disease.
Dr. Perelson will highlight how theoretical physics addressed the HIV crisis and discuss current efforts to produce a cure.
