HIV Vaccine Awareness Day Webinar Series

This year marks the 25th anniversary of HIV Vaccine Awareness Day. Nothing about HIV vaccine research has ever been easy, and this past year has shown us how difficult this research is, and how essential it continues to be.

Join us for a webinar series this month to mark important milestones in HIV vaccine development and discuss the path forward. The series is chaired by Bill Snow and Stacey Hannah and offers expert perspective on three angles that are critical to vaccine development: Platforms, Processes and Prospects.
