International AIDS Society announces inaugural recipients of innovative HIV research awards
Date:7/13/2010

aid NIH Office of AIDS Research Director, Dr. Jack Whitescarver. "In addition to the quality of research awarded, the breadth of these grants, which cover behavioral science, operations research, clinical science and basic science, along with projects on co-infections and AIDS-related illnesses, illustrates the importance of this grant programme, both for these research efforts and for future responses to HIV and AIDS."

"CFAR support for CNIHR is a true research collaboration," said Dr Michael Saag, Director of CFAR at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. "Funding is essential to supporting new scientific research, but so is collaboration and mentorship in the lab. By pairing grantees with a CFAR institution that specializes in their area of work, this programme takes a hands-on approach to ensuring that each research project funded is supported to produce the maximum benefit for HIV and AIDS research."

The grantees will be awarded scholarships to attend the XVIII International AIDS Conference in Vienna on 18-23 July 2010. A pre-conference seminar with leading scientists in the HIV field is designed to give grantees an overview on HIV science and to present their projects. It will be followed by daily training and networking sessions at the conference. Grantees will also attend outreach trips to clinics, HIV research institutions, and community organizations in Vienna. The award ceremony will take place on 23 July 2010 at AIDS 2010 at the XVIII International AIDS Conference at the Wien Messe Center in Vienna, Austria, at 8:45 a.m., immediately before that day's plenary session.

The CNIHR grants are awarded to:

Joseph Brown, Lecturer at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, for the project: Environmental health and HIV/AIDS in rural South Africa; who will be working with Charles van der Horst, UNC-Chapel Hill.

Denise Evans, Medical Doctor at the Clinical HIV Research Unit Medicine, University of the Witwa
