Imaging the Virus

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the recently held workshop Harnessing Novel Imaging Approaches to Guide HIV Prevention and Cure Discoveries was probably akin to Proust. This two-day meeting featured a slew of interesting pictures of the virus and in this issue we have a curated selection of some of the best images, which are both informative and striking. We also provide a scientific update of data presented at the Keystone Symposium on HIV Vaccines, a profile of the cytomegalovirus-based HIV vaccine candidate that is being readied for human clinical trials, and an interview with Michael Osterholm, author of the recently published book Deadliest Enemy, Our War Against Killer Germs.
