Dr. David D. Ho is a leader in HIV/AIDS research who pioneered the highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART) treatment for HIV-infected patients. His work is based on the study of the dynamics of HIV replication which was active even during the asymptomatic phase, leading to better understanding of the mechanisms of HIV infection and a new method of applying HAART treatment at an early stage of infection by applying the maximum level of viral suppression to effectively control viral replication.
