We don’t often have the opportunity to talk about art, but in this issue IAVI Report explores the work of several artists who are culling laboratories for inspiration and collaborating closely with scientists to make some arresting artwork like the eerily beautiful sculpture of the HIV Envelope trimer above by Katharine Dowson. Just as Dowson’s sculpture indicates, this trimeric viral protein is somewhat shadowy and mysterious. But thanks to great progress in isolating and characterizing broadly neutralizing antibodies that target HIV Envelope, more is known about it than ever before. Much of this progress was showcased at the recent Keystone Symposium on HIV Vaccines, held this March.
