“We scientists must collaborate and not isolate ourselves, basing our work on innovation, flexibility and speed”

Bruce D. Walker discussed his scientific experience, both in the USA and South Africa, working in research aimed at developing an AIDS vaccine, and shared with the audience his experience in training the future generations of African scientists.

“In Africa we can distribute medication that prolongs the patients’ life, but there is no doubt that the most effective solution consists in developing a vaccine that puts an end to the disease”


“We must develop a new concept of scientific financing that includes the possibility of failure”


“We scientists must collaborate and not isolate ourselves, basing our work on innovation, flexibility and speed”


“Science must go from the laboratories to the street; it must be applied to the patients in order to learn of their experiences and needs”


“Some of the greatest challenges research has to face in developing a vaccine are the lack of financing, the restrictions on conventional financing mechanisms, and the lack of multidisciplinary collaboration”


“Our strategic plan for the coming years consists in bringing together the most talented people from different parts of the world to develop an AIDS vaccine”
