The Junior Editors of Drug Target Review, Victoria Rees and Hannah Balfour, discuss some of the most noteworthy news and announcements from this year.
Using cryo-electron microscopy and site-specific mass spectrometry, researchers have mapped the glycans that shield HIV from the immune system.
In human cells, a drug candidate called PF-00835231 has demonstrated success at blocking the reproduction of SARS-CoV-2.
Researchers have revealed that the antibiotic concanamycin A targets a protein called Nef, allowing the immune system to destroy HIV in cells.
