During the series NIH researchers will discuss early AIDS cases, the vital role that NIH played in the discovery of HIV, initial attempts to develop therapies and vaccines, current HIV vaccine efforts, and research that may eventually lead to a better understanding of HIV and AIDS. The series will begin on Monday, December 1 at 9:00 a.m. and will continue through Monday, December 8 at 5:00 p.m., Eastern Time. Each segment runs approximately five minutes.
