Educational mobile app about HIV replication developed by the Institute for Molecular Medicine and Infectious Disease will released in Apple and Google Play stores on June 1

JUNE 1, 2017

CD4 HunterTM, the first educational mobile game app developed by the Institute for Molecular Medicine and Infectious Disease is available. FREE download at Apple and Google Play App Stores. Watch the CD4 Hunter trailer.

CD4 HunterTM combines fast-paced game play with science learning to showcase the first step of the complex and dynamic replication cycle of the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1): binding and attachment. The app will be available for free download on Apple and Google Play app stores on June 1 and will be presented at Microbe 2017, the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) held in New Orleans, June 1-5, 2017. CD4 Hunter was developed “in house” by the Center for Business and Program Development of the Institute for Molecular Medicine and Infectious Disease (IMMID), at Drexel University College of Medicine.
