AIDS vaccine research by an Indian-American

Wouldn’t it be great if an Indian were to find a cure for AIDS?  Or if an Indian-American were to develop a vaccine to prevent AIDS? What if I were to tell you the latter could actually happen? As things stand, we know we don’t have a cure for AIDS, all we have are retroviral…
