The 11th International Conference on AIDS, to be held in Vancouver, Canada, next week, comes at a time of guarded optimism on some aspects of the 15-year battle against the disease. This represents a change from 3 years ago, when Science last did a special issue on AIDS, with a focus on European researchers (28 May 1993). This special section, focusing largely on the United States, looks at the changing culture of AIDS research (p. 1876); the AIDS marketplace (p. 1880); the story behind the discovery of a promising new class of drugs (p. 1882); and a surprising recent meeting on antiviral therapy (p. 1884). We also present the viewpoints of leading researchers on HIV pathogenesis (p. 1885), drug treatments (p. 1886), and vaccine research (p. 1888).
