Man, in a Mouse


Author(s):
Abstract:
J. Victor Garcia-Martinez and his lab at UNC transplanted human cells into mice to study diseases particular to humans. Their human-mouse model is the first of its kind and has enabled new possibilities for AIDS research. The Garcia-Martinez lab used the model to find that the Truvada drug can prevent HIV transmission.
