ASHA grant funds cutting-edge AIDS research at Tel Aviv University
Date:7/12/2012

Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is one of the largest public health crises of our time. According to the Foundation for AIDS Research, more than 34 million people worldwide are currently living with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) or AIDS, and 3.4 million of them are children under the age of 15.

Now, with generous funding from the American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (ASHA) program, part of the U. S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Tel Aviv University has fully equipped a bio-safety lab dedicated to researching the virus and developing potential therapies, novel diagnostics, and vaccines. Twenty five scientists across 12 departments and two faculties, including the Sackler Faculty of Medicine and the George S. Wise Faculty of Life Sciences have come together to work on this project.

"ASHA funding has allowed us to build a special facility where we can work with viruses and pathogenic bacteria in a safe manner, using state-of-the-art equipment, while complying with U.S. standards and regulations for this type of research," says Prof. Karen Avraham, the Co-Director of the grant and a U,S.-trained researcher who obtained her undergraduate degree from Washington University, performed post-doctoral training at the National Cancer Institute in Maryland and a sabbatical at the Harvard Medical School.

USAID is a United States-based organization that is dedicated to promoting shared economic prosperity; strengthening democracy and good governance; improving global health, food security, environmental sustainability and education; helping societies prevent and recover from conflicts; and providing humanitarian assistance in the wake of disasters. Its ASHA program works to provide grants to non-profit universities, secondary schools, libraries, and medical centers abroad, providing the benefits of American education and medical care, and promoting good relations with the United States.
