New insights on HIV

Using an abberior STED-FCS, a team from four European countries, comprising Christian Eggeling (Leibniz IPHT & Friedrich Schiller University Jena) and Delphine Muriaux (Montpellier Infectious Disease Research Institute) discovered the existence and composition of a lipid-based platform for HIV virus assembly. These results provide novel molecular insights on HIV virus assembly and are a starting point for the development of new antiviral drugs.
