Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Despite collective efforts in understanding HIV infection and efficient antiviral therapies, we still do not have a sterilizing cure. Novel technological advancements, e.g., in microscopy imaging and in single-cell analyses, as well as recent studies continue to uncover novel mechanisms previously ignored or allow for the revisiting of old dogmas, opening additional perspectives for novel antiviral strategies and therapeutic interventions.
With this perspective in mind, the aim of this Special Issue is to provide an overview of the current knowledge on the HIV life cycle, its multiple interactions with cellular proteins that promote or inhibit viral progression, as well as novel targets and antiviral strategies for drug development and HIV cures.
