Description Our NIH P50 CHEETAH Center supports basic research in HIV structural biology and molecular virology, with the long-term goal of identifying effective new strategies for therapies, vaccines, and cures. Fundamental studies of HIV capsid structure and function performed by Sundquist, Hill, and colleagues formed the basis for Gilead's development of highly potent, and remarkably long-lasting HIV capsid inhibitors that support quarterly dosing. These inhibitors have now entered Phase II clinical trials. Similarly, pioneering studies of D-peptide inhibitors by Kay and colleagues produced a highly potent inhibitor of HIV entry that will enter Phase I trials in 2020.
