Warner C. Greene, Gladstone Institutes (image) Gladstone Institutes Caption Dr. Greene led two teams of researchers who published studies in the journals Nature and Science that detail HIV infection. The research published in Science identifies the protein that senses fragments of HIV DNA in immune cells, triggering a fiery and inflammatory process that can kill the immune system as HIV progresses to AIDS. The research published in Nature details the molecular mechanisms by which an HIV infection leads to AIDS -- along with a potential therapy to block that process.
