Interestingly, Duke received a $28 Million grant from the NIH to discover immunologic research directed at tackling major scientific problems that hinder the development of an effective HIV-1 vaccine. The vaccine strategy will be based on identifying and targeting novel HIV-1 vulnerabilities to B, T and NK cell immune responses and then using this information to design vaccines that will induce protective immunity at the time and location of HIV-1 transmission.
