Today, there are life-saving HIV treatment medicines which improve the quality of life for those infected and reduces the likelihood of transmission. However, they don't prevent the contraction of the virus. Only a vaccine can protect people from getting HIV, so why don't we have a vaccine yet?

Larry Loomis-Price, biochemistry professor at the University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) will present "Why don't we have a vaccine to prevent HIV?" at an HIV Seminar from 1-2 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 15, at UHD Northwest, room B12.344.

For more information, contact Dr. Loomis-Price at 713-221-5843.
