Bette Korber, a Los Alamos National Laboratory Fellow and NMC Affiliate Scientist, will speak about her research developing an HIC vaccine over the course of three Frontiers in Science public lectures in Los Alamos
Korber’s talk titled “Toward a World Without AIDS: Developing a Vaccine Against HIV,” is about her work on designing HIV vaccines that trigger an immune response that can “remember” and recognize a virus that is constantly changing. A vaccine she helped develop is currently undergoing clinical trials in southern Africa.
All Frontiers in Science presentations begin at 7 p.m. and are free of charge. The talks are:
- Thursday, Jan. 31 at Duane Smith Auditorium, 1300 Diamond Dr. in Los Alamos;
- Tuesday, Feb. 5 at the Jemez Rooms, Santa Fe Community College, 6401 Richards Ave. in Santa Fe; and
