Searching for a cure for the 38 million people living with HIV

It has been over 40 years since the first reported case of HIV and today we are closer to a cure than ever.

Our goal is to implement a genetic strategy using CRISPR gene editing platform for the permanent inactivation of HIV and enhancement of the immune system.

Collaborating for success

It takes a village to find an HIV cure. CRISPR for Cure is a highly collaborative and synergistic research program with academic, industry, government, and community partnerships.
