Go Behind-The-Scenes: World AIDS Day 2022

Get a behind-the-scenes glance at what researchers are working on to uncover a cure for HIV. Raif Derrazi, HOPE’s CAB member, will catch up with Melanie Ott as she tours a biosafety lab at Gladstone Institutes and answers your questions about her HIV research.

This Instagram Live event will include a conversation with Patricia Defechereux. She will walk through an art exhibit presented as part of the Community Arts Integrated Research (CAIR) program that uses the creation of art as a vehicle for investigating and developing HIV cure education.

Message from a 52-year-old Australian mother with HIV living in Sydney recently diagnosed in October:

“If you haven’t watched/listened to Raif’s interview (on his IG) at Gladstone Institute on the research being done to find a cure for HIV, please watch it. It was so informative and their knowledge is mind-blowing. Seeing how passionate and dedicated the scientists are, who are heading up this research, has given me so much hope, that they will find a cure. Not only that, but knowing that these people, who have no idea who we are, are fighting for us, filled me with hope and gratitude. Thank you Gladstone Institute and thank you @RaifDerrazi, I feel so lucky to have found you”
