About the Game of T-cells
Inspired by the hit TV show Game of Thrones, our goal is to share research from labs across the world about topics within the HIV field that relate to the balance between different aspects of the immune system! By sharing ideas and current HIV topics all in one place, we hope to help sway the odds in the fight against HIV and empower those living with the virus. Finally, while doing so, we hope to build a community that promotes and embraces ideas to combat this disease while also providing some entertainment.
This website is meant to creatively encourage further learning and exploration of how the immune system handles stress and is NOT medical advice.
