20 years after its discovery, over 40 million individuals worldwide are infected with the HIV virus, the causative agent of AIDS. In its July issue, Nature Medicine takes a look back to examine HIV science over the last 20 years, and evaluates the challenges for the immediate future. The special issue features review and commentary articles from HIV scientists including Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Charlie Dauguet, the first person ever to see the virus under the electron microscope. Other articles focus on progress on the vaccine front and advances in HIV-1 therapy. Efforts to prevent infection through education and public health efforts are also highlighted. The articles will coincide with the upcoming International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Pathogenesis and Treatment in Paris on 13-16 July 2003, and in particular with a plenary session to commemorate the 20-year landmark. The special section is now freely available on Nature Medicine’s website at Special Focus – HIV.
