Synopsis:

"[A]n important book not only for the now but for the future of this epidemic and those to come."―Dr. Robert Gallo

When scientists proved in 1984 that HIV causes AIDS, a vaccine race spun into action. But the sprint to develop an AIDS vaccine now more closely resembles a crawl. Jon Cohen elucidates the forces that have hindered the search: unforeseen scientific obstacles, clashing personalities, the uncertain marketplace, haphazard political organization, and serious ethical dilemmas. Beyond a powerful critique, Cohen also offers specific recommendations for accelerating the effort. 6 pages of b/w photographs.

About the Author: Jon Cohen is a journalist and covers science and medicine for Science magazine. He lives in Cardiff, California.
