HIV research at the University of Nebraska School of Medicine

I had the opportunity to visit the University of Nebraska School of Medicine, this past Friday (May 4th).  Dr. Howard Gendelman invited me there to give a seminar.  For those of you who think that Omaha, Nebraska has only one attraction (Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway), you should think again.  University of Nebraska is a terrific hub of HIV-1 neurobiology research headed by Gendelman http://www.unl.edu/virologycenter/faculty/gendelman.shtml.  I also had the opportunity to see again Steve Hinrichs http://www.unmc.edu/pathology/hinrichs_steven.htm who postdoc’d with George Khoury at the same time as I did 25 years ago; and also Howard Fox http://www.unmc.edu/publicrelations/HowardFox.htm. I had visited the University approximately 15 years ago, and it is an eye-opener for me to see the tremendous progress that has transpired in the ensuing years.  If you are interested in HIV-1 neurovirology, Omaha is a stop worth making the next time you are in middle-America.
