A few decades after the discovery of human immunodeficiency viruses as the causal pathogens for AIDS, an effective AIDS vaccine has not been successfully developed to curb the global epidemic of HIV infections. HIV employs many tactics to prevent induction of protective T and B cell immune responses. Facing such a huge challenge, we hope this "AIDS Vaccine" special issue will offer a platform for publication of cutting-edge results in the AIDS vaccine research field.
