Summary Join us for a Q & A session with Timothy Ray Brown, the first person cured of HIV, and Gero Hütter, the doctor who cured him.
Description Seattle native Timothy Ray Brown (aka “The Berlin patient”) is the first person in the world cured of HIV. Brown and Gero Hütter, the doctor who cured him, will be in Seattle for a moderated question and answer session for you to meet and ask questions. Hütter, M.D., Ph.D. 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/ 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.
