Scientists from UC Davis and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine are rejoicing this weekend after filming the HIV virus spreading for the first time ever. Their footage reveals that the HIV virus spreads through the synapse and is directly transferred through cells—a completely new notion.

The researchers’ findings should aid them in researching new ways to fight HIV. Dr. Huser, one of the scientists involved in this research project, told the Telegraph, "We should be developing vaccines that help the immune system recognise proteins involved in virological synapse formation and antiviral drugs that target the factors required for synapse formation."
