David Margollis, MD, Professor of Virology, published “Persistence by proliferation?” in the journal Science. The paper describes how forcing HIV-1 infections out of the virus’s latent state without triggering a new infection could make the virus vulnerable to a targeted immune response therapy. 

Ronald Swanstrom, PhD, Professor of Virology, published “A fitness bottleneck in HIV-1 transmission” in the journal
Science. The paper posits a new model of HIV-1 transmission based on the average number of cells infected from a single host cell.
