Poster on the Immune Response to HIV

January/February 2013

Nature Magazine

This neat (and complex) poster summarises how HIV establishes infection at mucosal surfaces, the ensuing immune response to the virus involving dendritic cells, B cells and T cells, and how HIV subverts this response to establish a chronic infection.

The poster is available as a free download.
