Multi-scale imaging reveals new insights into the interactions between HIV and host immune responses that allow the virus to persist during antiviral treatment. The new technology being utilized will be described, as will the emerging insights and potential new approaches for intervention in the clinic. Don’t miss this visually dazzling presentation by Tom Hope that will help you understand infection and interventions from a nanoscopic perspective.


Thomas J. Hope,PhD

Thomas J. Hope, PH.D., received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, Department of Immunology, where he studied Molecular Immunology under Dr. H. Sakano. He completed his postdoctoral training at the University of California, San Francisco where he studied the HIV Rev protein. Dr. Hope’s laboratory at Northwestern University has pioneered the use of cell biology approaches to study HIV providing images and movies of HIV interacting with cells and tissues. For the past 25 years, his research has focused on HIV Cellular Virology. More recently, this focus has expanded to HIV related mucosal immunology, HIV transmission, and HIV prevention science. His work has been published over the past three decades in respected journals such as Science, PNAS, The Journal of Cell Biology, Cell Host and Microbes, Journal of Virology, and PLoS Pathogens. Dr. Hope is also the Editor-in-Chief of AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses and a Section Editor for PLoS Pathogens. Dr. Hope is a widely respected speaker and gives talks about his innovative work on AIDS/HIV at many institutions and conferences, nationally and internationally.

Learning Objectives

  • Appreciate the focal nature of HIV infection and tissue reservoirs.
  • Increase understanding of the virus and its likely ongoing expression during periods of supposed latency.
  • Be aware of the complexities of antibody distribution and cycling in the context of human anatomy and physiology.
  • Gain insights into the advantages and disadvantages of utilizing broadly neutralizing antibodies for HIV prevention, treatment, and cure.
