Current therapies are very good at keeping HIV under control, but they never completely cure it. That may change, if David Margolis and his colleagues are successful. As a physician and researcher HIV imageat the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Margolis studies the molecular biology of HIV infections. He is looking for ways to completely eradicate the virus from infected individuals.

In this podcast, Margolis speaks with associate editor Elsa Youngsteadt about what it will take to cure a person (or a mouse) of HIV.

Margolis spoke at Sigma Xi headquarters in January 2012.

Richard Wysk, a professor of industrial and systems engineering at North Carolina State University, discusses the latest successes with this research, and the timeline for creating more complicated structures.
