Newswise — Douglas Richman, MD, is Professor of Pathology and Medicine at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and the Florence Seeley Riford Chair in AIDS Research. He is Director of the Center for AIDS Research at UC San Diego and staff physician at the VA San Diego Healthcare System, and has focused his research on HIV disease and pathogenesis for the past 30 years.

His wide-ranging research in the HIV field has encompassed resistance and host immune responses. He serves on the Vaccine Research Committee of the AIDS Clinical Trials Group, and on the International AIDS Society panel responsible for publishing international treatment guidelines.

Richman was one of the group of researchers who first demonstrated HIV drug resistance in 1989, and in 1997, his laboratory was also among the first to demonstrate HIV latency.

In this video, Dr. Richman discusses the current status of HIV/AIDS research and what lies ahead.
