HIV Dendritic Mechanism - Global Health Institute, EPFL (2010)
HIV propagates from one immune cell to another by a grabbing and "hugging" process also called a dendritic one. This clip shows how the genetic material is transferred on the surface of the cell to the other. Based on the research of Prof. Didier Trono and his team from Laboratory of Virology and Genetics, Global Health Institute (GHI), EPFL.
Technology: Our in-house ray tracing and simulation engine BioInspire (written from scratch in C/C++) was used to create models, animations, renderings and special effects. Music was specially composed for the movie.
