21st International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016)


NIH's Dr. Dieffenbach Shares Updates on HIV Vaccine Research From Second Day of AIDS 2016

July 19, 2016

As the second day of the International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2016) came to a close in Durban, South Africa, we caught up with Dr. Carl Dieffenbach again via Facebook Live to get his thoughts on some of the day's highlights. He is Director of the Division of AIDS at NIH's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

This was "HIV vaccine day" at AIDS 2016, according to Dr. Dieffenbach, since there were several important presentations about advances in ongoing HIV vaccine research. These included details on the launch of a large vaccine trial that will involve 5,200 people in South Africa and elsewhere in sub-Saharan Africa.

In case you missed it, you can view the recorded version of the Facebook Live conversation with his colleague Anne Rancourt below.

Tune in to the Facebook page on Wednesday, July 20 at 6:30 PM Durban time/12:30 PM EST for our final conversation from AIDS 2016 with Carl on Facebook Live. Or watch the recording of that update later in the day.
