ST 3: HIV 101

Aim/Rationale
Students are provided with an application of retroviral replication, which clearly demonstrates the difference between lytic and lysogenic viral cycles, and how that distinction affects treatment and/or maintenance of an illness. In addition, students will be introduced to certain aspects of the human immune response and the effects a virus like HIV has on the human body.
