This 2010 Falling Walls video lecture features Eckhard Thiel, who made headlines around the world in 2009 when he and his colleagues announced they had cured a 42-year-old American who suffered from AIDS. The first to have completely cured an HIV patient, Thiel's work is now a source of hope and inspiration for HIV-infected populations. While gene therapy strategies were seen as being on the periphery of contemporary AIDS research, Thiel's success through bone marrow transplantation has demonstrated the immense potential of this method. With 25 years of experience - and based in Germany, which is at the forefront of AIDS research - Thiel is now seen as a pioneer in AIDS treatment. Currently exploring the potential of stem cell transplantation to find a long-term, sustainable cure, Thiel now attempts to deduce an unambiguous result beyond solely theoretical gene therapy approaches.
