CFAR Investigator Dr. David Margolis has been featured on NPR’s The State of Things talking about how studies led by UNC investigators continue to make progress in HIV prevention, treatment and eradication research. He also discusses in layman’s terms all of the HIV news to come out of the International AIDS Society (IAS) meeting in Vancouver last month.
Margolis, a professor of medicine, epidemiology, and microbiology and immunology, serves as director of the School of Medicine’s Program in Translational Clinical Research.
Dr. Margolis currently leads the largest collaboration of HIV researchers, working to force HIV out of “latency” so they can attempt to kill virus particles that typically lay dormant, hidden from therapies. Margolis was among the first researchers to explore methods to force HIV particles out of latency, which is considered a major obstacle to finding curative therapies.
