HIV/AIDS Simulate the spread of HIV through a population with virtual fluid exchanges. Results from a computer-simulated ELISA are used for an epidemiological study to determine possible original HIV carriers.

The ELISA Assay Understand how an ELISA is performed, learn what serum components are measured in an ELISA, and be able to explain how an ELISA test is used to detect sero-positivity for HIV or any other pathogen.

Western Blotting Analysis Learn why a western blot is a confirmatory test for HIV positivity, what serum components are measured in an ELISA, and how a western blot is performed.

Introduction to Immunology Learn the basics about the immune system.

Antibody Structure Understand how an antibody's physical structure determines its interaction with antigen.

HIV and AIDS Learn about HIV's interaction with the immune system and how current treatments interrupt the HIV lifecycle.

Case Studies Written in collaboration with Veterinary Science and Microbiology, these cases studies are designed for advanced students.

AIDS Lab Use this laboratory simulation in your classroom to teach about the spread of a hypothetical disease causing agent, and show how the presence of antibodies in a sample of body fluid can be used to determine if individuals are infectious.

Edward Jenner and the Discovery of Vaccination is a historical exhibit prepared by the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections at the University of South Carolina.
