We hosted our first journal club session of the year aligned with the pre-clinical module of Infection and Defence, featuring a new and exciting paper on how HIV-1 evades innate immune recognition through specific cofactor recruitment. An interactive session hosted by Dr. Richard Milne, it was an opportunity to read, discuss and understand a really top class paper, and was very well-received – we learnt a lot about how data tells the story of scientific discovery and how basic science research can potentially lead to clinical applications! We are delighted to hear that more such sessions would be welcomed – in fact, we are planning to organise at least one journal club session for every module, so watch this space!
