HIV research. Researcher working in a laboratory to isolate viral proteins for crystallisation using chromatography. This is being done as part of research that has led to a potential breakthrough in understanding the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that causes AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). The study uncovered the crystal structure of an enzyme called integrase. This enzyme is targeted by the antiretroviral drugs used against HIV. Photographed in 2010, at Imperial College London, UK.
