Marie-Line Andréola and her team from the University explain the mechanisms of HIV virus replication. Although there is no vaccine available against AIDS virus, inhibitory drugs are on the market and help patients to live longer by greatly hampering the replication of the virus. The cellular and molecular microbiology and pathogenicity laboratory is particularly interested in one element, the integrase enzyme, as part of other inhibitory pathways.
