Our research focuses on three main approaches to the problems posed by HIV:
1) Finding a way to control or suppress HIV
2) Finding a way to repair and restore the immune system
3) Preventing and treating diseases that complicate HIV infection.
We start new studies every few months as ongoing research suggests promising approaches.
Because of research like that done by the UW ACTU, people in Washington, the USA and around the world today are living longer, healthier lives with HIV than was thought possible just 25 years ago. Twenty five years is very rapid progress indeed for an arsenal of weapons to combat a life-threatening condition like HIV/AIDS.
