This series, published in Retrovirology, presents a collection of articles describing the state of the art in small animal models for HIV research.
It is intended to highlight the progress made and how these models have been utilized to address issues of fundamental importance in HIV research. In addition, it aims to shed light on what limitation of the current models should be considered in planning future experiments that use these systems, and what might be expected from the next generation of precision small animal models for HIV research.
