Guo is working with virologist Qingsheng Li and synthetic biologist Wei Niu on a promising approach that could someday lead to a more effective HIV vaccine. They are working on a method using a live attenuated virus for a vaccine, yet the virus would be genetically altered so it could not replicate after triggering immunity.
