Is This the End of HIV?
Dear Alumni, Colleagues, and Friends of the Miller School Family
At the Miller School, a symphony of scientific discovery is changing the global health landscape, and we now stand on the precipice of life-changing breakthroughs. A functional cure for HIV is on the horizon through strategies like “shock and lock,” an option that teases out dormant HIV-positive T cells and makes the virus inert or destroys it entirely. Multidisciplinary teams are also exploring a groundbreaking treatment for type 1 diabetes, a chronic disease that has long posed significant challenges for patients and researchers alike. These remarkable achievements, many of them powered by gifts from our generous donors, represent only a sliver of the extraordinary advances taking place every day at our preeminent institution.
