"Ultimately, if you really want to 'win the game,' you have to cure the HIV and cure the lymphoma," Prof Krishnan tells ecancertv at ASH 2014, describing her work on modifying haematopoietic progenitor cells with gene therapy to engineer resistance to HIV.

The engineered stem cells can then be used alongside other stem cell transplants aimed at treating the lymphoma, creating a two-pronged approach to treating HIV-associated lymphoma.
