Researchers at the HIV Vaccine Trials Network are working toward the goal of welcoming an AIDS-free generation - and they're doing it by developing an effective, global HIV vaccine. Through clinical trials at sites all over the world, efforts are focused on a successful Thai trial, called RV144, which recently provided renewed optimism that the scientific-underpinnings for an HIV Vaccine are coming closer to a reality. Our new video made its debut at AIDS 2014 in Melbourne, Australia. See video >

‘Angels in America’ cast visits Fred Hutch to hear about the early days of AIDS from those who were there

In the late 1980s, Dr. Jim Kublin was a medical intern at New York’s St. Vincent’s Hospital, the West Village epicenter of the U.S. AIDS epidemic. The now-closed hospital is the setting for key scenes in Tony Kushner’s award-winning drama about the period, “Angels in America.”

To prepare for an upcoming revival of the play, cast and crew from Seattle’s Intiman Theater recently visited Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to meet with Kublin, now executive director of the Hutch-based HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN). Read more >
