|2||VideoDavid Margolis, M.D., HDAC inhibition and chromatin remodeling to disrupt proviral latency||Dr. Margolis is working with a group of compounds that may be able to flush HIV out of the body, a goal that constitutes of cornerstone of HIV research. With amfAR's support, he has narrowed down the compounds to a group that looks promising for follow-up, taking us one step closer to eventually finding a cure for HIV.

U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who was given an amfAR Award of Courage by amfARs chairman of the board, Kenneth Cole, said she was confident that President Obama would honor his commitment to using science as a basis for public policy.

We say that science is the answer to our prayers. This short video offers perspectives from some of the conference speakers: Earvin "Magic" Johnson; Jeffrey Crowley, director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy; actor, advocate, and artist Jane Seymour; Miguel Gomez, director of AIDS.gov; and Regan Hoffman; editor in chief of Poz magazine.||3/6/09||Gratis||Ver en iTunes|
