AIDS Vaccine


The Gates Foundation announced today it is investing a total of $287 million in the search for an AIDS vaccine, including $18 million for a Boston researcher, Dr. Norman Letvin of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, the Globe's breaking news blog reports today.

But some other scientists, including Ronald Desrosiers, a pioneering AIDS researcher affiliated with Harvard University who runs the New England Regional Primate Research Center in Southborough, Mass. have their doubts about whether it's possible to find such a vaccine, Newhouse News Service reports.
