In the September issue of “Cell Host and Microbe”, researchers at the University of Montréal published a new method to identify HIV-infected cells. This is particularly demanding because such blood cells only occur in very small amounts. Under the scientific direction of Dr. Daniel Kaufmann, virologists at CRCHUM developed a novel procedure to identify one infected cell in a million cells. Such precise methods are necessary to improve methods which remove the virus from the body. PhD student Julia Nießl from Bavaria is part of the research group. The partnership Bavaria-Québec partnership supports doctoral projects by through its program for exemptions of student fees for foreign students in Québec.
