The science for a broadly applicable cure for AIDS is on the horizon.
The Research Foundation to Cure AIDS has been expressly created to build an unprecedented alliance of the critical stakeholders and core technologies needed to achieve this ambitious goal. This is a radical and differentiated initiative about actually curing AIDS, and not about prevention or treatment.
Please join us to explore the opportunity, challenges and impact of a world without AIDS. The story will unfold in three chapters:
1) The science of a stem cell cure to AIDS – the Berlin Patient case study
2) The challenges to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in NYC and worldwide
3) The global socioeconomic impact of a world without AIDS

Brown and Gero Huetter MD, the doctor who cured him, will be in Seattle for a first time every historical event and moderated question and answer session for you to meet and ask questions. Huetter will share his experiments that led to this cure and Brown will share his inspiring personal story.
Recently profiled in the New Yorker article, “Can AIDS Be Cured?,” the research at the heart of Timothy Ray Brown’s remarkable recovery is all the more fascinating and relevant as scientists continue to seek out new therapies and approaches to curing or controlling HIV and AIDS.
As a result of his experience, Brown launched in October 2014 the Cure for AIDS Coalition, a public benefit corporation whose sole mission is to find a cure for HIV.
This program is hosted in association with the defeatHIV Community Advisory Board, the Cure Report, the University of Washington Center for AIDS Research, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and UW AIDS Clinical Trials Unit.
