  • A new technology for making more efficient vaccines

    How can vaccines generate stronger, faster and more effective immune responses to protect against new infections and certain types of cancer? Enter into the IrsiCaixa lab and discover what VLPs are, how they are produced and how they work.

  • Stop AIDS

    How does HIV infect us and how to current drugs on the market help control the infection? In this game you'll have to treat a patient infected with HIV. You'll need to pass all 4 rounds with questions and mini-games in order to control the infection.

  • HIV, the virus with multiple changing faces

    What is HIV? What does its replication cycle look like? How is it transmitted? This video will provide the answers to these questions, and will give you information on the number of people affected, the different phases of the illness, groups at risk and the reasons why the figures for new infections are rising in groups which are theoretically not at risk. 

  • Become a doctor and give each patient the best treatment!

    In this game we invite you to give your patients in a hospital the right treatment so that they can be released. You'll find out more about the diseases they're suffering from (AIDS, type 1 diabetes and breast cancer) and how the different treatments work. 

     

  • HIV: ethical issues

    What are the difficulties associated with treatments for AIDS? What shortfalls do prevention campaigns suffer from? Why are there so many people who are infected but don't know they are? Do you think sex education is sufficient? In this video, a patient, a researcher and a doctor give us their opinions. What about you? What do you think?

  • New paths against drug resistance

    What role does HIV drug resistance have in current treatments? Can this resistance be passed from one individual to another? Laboratories are looking for new drugs which act on the different stages of the replication cycle.

  • Joining efforts to find the HIV vaccine

    What does current research into an HIV vaccine look like? In this video, scientists explain the characteristics a vaccine would need to have in order to be effective against HIV, and why that is not so simple. A similar vaccine could be used to combat other infectious diseases.

  • Plants to farm drugs

    Can plants act as drug “factories”? This video shows us a new line of research which involves using agrobacteria to produce drugs. Transgenic plants can be used to obtain drugs for treating illnesses like AIDS or other infectious or tropical diseases.
