James Hildreth: Baits of falsehood, carps of truth: 25 years of fishing for insights on HIV
Professor James Hildreth tells us about Immunology in Oxford at the end of the 1970s and the beginning of the 1980s when he started a DPhil project as a Rhode Scholar. Professor Hildreth worked on the debate of Altered Self vs Dual Recognition, using a new tool at the time, monoclonal antibodies.
Professor Hildreth then moved on from flu to working on HIV. His work has been focussing on the first steps (attachment) and final steps (budding and assembly) of the HIV-1 replication cycle.
