HIV/AIDS expert Douglas Richman, MD, professor of pathology and medicine at the UC San Diego School of Medicine, discusses how developments in drugs have turned a disease that carried a death sentence into a chronic, yet manageable disease. He addresses the many advances in this field over the past 30 years, the need for increased work on prevention and the possibility of developing a vaccine. Dr. Richman is the Florence Seeley Riford Chair in AIDS Research, director of the Center for AIDS Research at UC San Diego and staff physician at the VA San Diego Healthcare System. He has researched HIV disease and pathogenesis for the past 30 years. His laboratory was the first to identify HIV drug resistance.
