The defeatHIV Community Advisory Board (CAB) invites you to join us on Tuesday, January 14 at our community event; “THE WORD ON AN HIV CURE.” This evening will be a great way to meet the scientists and community members who have come together to support the research into an HIV cure conducted in Seattle at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Drs. Hans-Peter Kiem and Keith Jerome will be on hand to reveal their current research and answer questions on how they plan to create HIV-resistant cells and to ‘snip’ HIV DNA from its hiding places throughout the body. This research attempts to build on the unique case of Timothy Ray Brown, the first person to be cured of HIV.
In addition, there will be a community conversation around HIV cure research.
