Dr. Davey Smith and Susanna Concha-Garcia spoke with KPBS about The Last Gift, a new study at the University of California, San Diego, designed to help understand HIV reservoirs. The Last Gift Project works closely with the long-standing, California NeuroAIDS Tissue Network (CNTN)– the CNTN has been enrolling participants for tissue donation studies for almost 20 years. The Last Gift complements the CNTN by doing intensive end of life monitoring to determine where HIV resides when active replication is suppressed. By learning more about where the virus hides, researchers hope to learn how to target these hidden pockets of HIV for eradication; an essential step on the road to finding a cure.
