Increase the Physiological Relevance of HIV Models with RoboSep™

Despite intense research in the 30 years since the discovery of HIV/AIDS, the disease remains a global epidemic with no credible vaccine available. Many theoretical and empirical models in HIV research have proven to be of limited relevance to the in vivo dynamics of HIV infection, and this represents a major obstacle to vaccine development. As several recent reviews emphasize, research needs to turn towards more physiologically relevant models to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms of HIV pathogenesis.
