Founded in 1991, ADARC focuses both on basic research efforts to increase understanding of the structure and function of HIV and to define the mechanism by which it destroys the immune system, and on translational efforts to develop novel therapies to treat and prevent HIV.
In their earlier papers (3,4) both the ADARC and Boston groups recognized the importance of such observations for HIV-specific immunity: the immune system must have sufficient levels of viral antigen (specifically those epitopes that induce the strongest responses) to maintain better control of the virus.
