Reversion of HIV Latency by Small Molecule Inhibition of miR

Alex Deiters of North Carolina State University in the U.S. will work to discover small molecule inhibitors of short ribonucleic acids (microRNAs) that cause HIV latency in resting T-lymphocytes. Inhibiting the function of these microRNAs could reverse HIV latency, purge HIV reservoirs, and ultimately represent a chemotherapeutic approach to eradicating HIV infection.
