News on the latest HIV vaccine candidate

For my latest story for Healthline, I covered research in The Lancet that delved into a potential new HIV vaccine candidate. It's only the fifth HIV vaccine concept in the history of the epidemic and is currently being tested for efficacy in humans. The good news? The early findings appear to be encouraging.

I spoke with lead researcher Dr. Dan H. Barouch, director of the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, Dr. Ronald G. Collman, director of the Penn Center for AIDS Research in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Dr. Susan Buchbinder,  professor at the University of California, San Francisco, and the director of Bridge HIV, an HIV prevention research unit at the San Francisco Department of Public Health, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Check out the link here for more.
