Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As the guest editors of this Life Special Issue on "Emerging Knowledge on Human Immunodeficiency Virus", we invite you to submit your original research on this subject.

HIV medicine is a field with exciting developments and an active pipeline of therapeutic and basic scientific knowledge. The combination of scientific knowledge and its implementation, which has been coupled with engaging communities and state and global entities in planning and allocating resources, has changed the landscape of HIV medicine. However, there is still a great deal of work to carry out in the quest for better treatment and management strategies.

The global management of HIV infections comprises an ever-changing puzzle of basic research, therapeutic developments, social action against stigma, and the involvement of communities and global organizations. It is one of the most multi-faceted and multi-factorial fields in contemporary medicine, with a profound impact on millions of human lives.

From our two complementing sides of the HIV research spectrum, clinical and virology/epidemiology, we invite you to contribute to this Special Issue with your original research or review articles.

Prof. Dr. Dimitrios Paraskevis
