Understanding HIV, vaccines and monoclonal antibodies

To understand how HIV causes infection, students should have an appreciation for its basic virus structure and how it infects humans. Following infection, how does it cause disease and eventually AIDS? Why are antibiotics ineffective against viral infections? It is also important to understand the idea of using vaccines and monoclonal antibodies - and explore the associated ethical issues.
