Clad in blue jeans, the tall and athletic Professor Lynn Morris takes long strides down a corridor lined by glass-fronted laboratories where, under her watchful eye, just some of the many trials are being conducted that may one day produce an anti-HIV vaccine.

“I hope to be part of that team so we can put a stop to the 2 million new HIV infections that occur annually across our planet,” she says.

Morris heads the HIV virology section at Johannesburg’s National Institute for Communicable Diseases, and is also a research professor at Wits University.
