A workshop entitled: “What type of HIV Vaccine research should be promoted” took place during a virology conference held in Baltimore in November 2013 (www.omicsgroup.com/conferences/virology-2013/). The purpose of this workshop was to discuss new paradigms that better fit our increased knowledge of HIV immunopathology and which could possibly be more helpful in guiding future vaccine research than did past unsuccessful approaches. Panelists were asked to respond to four questions regarding possible novel paradigms that could guide future HIV vaccine research and their responses are summarized.
