Experimental protocol: Research into a HIV vaccine
By following this protocol, you can take part in research to develop a vaccine that could be used to protect us from HIV and to help people who are already infected. You will analyse different variants of HIV and a real vaccine candidate from an AIDS research centre using a technique called electrophoresis. You will study whether the vaccine candidate would work against all variants of HIV.
This experimental protocol is the ideal opportunity for you to reproduce an experiment exactly how it is conducted at research centres. You can do this activity at one of the research centres and museums that Xplore Health collaborates with. You'll find the list of available institutions in the activities section. You can also do the experiment in class by buying the reagents and instruments or a kit developed by a company (Xplore Health is not responsible for xxxxxx).
