Engineering immunity for next generation HIV vaccines: The intersection of bioengineering and immunology.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Bioengineering approaches grounded in immunology have the potential for the discovery and development of a successful HIV vaccine. The overarching goal is to engineer immunity through a fusion of immunology with bioengineering to create novel strategies for the design, development and delivery of vaccines based on the controlled modulation of the immune system. To foster these collaborations, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) brought together a group of experts (see Table 1) from these diverse fields for a workshop in September 2018 to: (1) engage the engineering, immunology, and HIV vaccinology communities to dialogue on the topic of an HIV vaccine and; (2) generate a framework of new and innovative research avenues to explore in HIV vaccinology between knowledge stakeholders and problem solvers.
