Cancer + HIV Vaccines
with Bert Jacobs | Charity of the week: Support for International Change

Bertram Jacobs is currently serving as School of Life Sciences Director and as a professor of virology. As part of ASU’s Biodesign Institute, his research is focused on developing a vaccine for HIV — one that prevents infection or extends the lives of HIV patients. Jacobs also leads a group of students every summer to sub-Saharan Africa to teach AIDS prevention to the international community.

This week we talk about the immune system, cancer, and the near-future possibility of a vaccine for HIV.
