Happy, successful children and students, and an AIDS vaccine, is what Schlesigner wants.
Question: What do you hope to accomplish?
Sarah Schlesinger: What I hope to accomplish is to have four sons leading productive and happy lives.
That would be the first thing. I would love for there to be an HIV vaccine in my lifetime. It doesn’t even have to be one in which I’ve participated developing. I feel that my contribution to the field has been not zero. I’ve worked on it, and I could care less whose vaccine it is. I really hope that I live to see a vaccine that works. And I hope that I live to see a lot of my students go forward doing wonderful work. I guess that’s it.
