Citizen Science Program presents
HIV, which has 9 genes and makes 15 proteins, infects human cells that have 20,000 genes and make thousands of proteins. Despite having a miniscule set of biological tools and a structure that is far simpler than the cells it infects, HIV can successfully integrate into cellular DNA and spread, first among cells inside the body and then to other human bodies. In this presentation, Dr. Talbert-Slagle will describe her work using HIV as a biological model for the spread of global health innovations in complex systems, including a discussion of parallels between a cell and a complex human system and between HIV and a successful health innovation. This framework has been applied to understand the spread of global health innovations in low- and middle-income countries and also to the spread of an intervention to reduce door-to-balloon time among patients with ST segment elevation myocardial infarction in the United States.
