Einstein-Montefiore Center for AIDS Research receives $8.5M award from NIH
Date:5/27/2008

May 27, 2008 (BRONX, NY) The Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University has been awarded a five-year grant of more than $8.5 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The renewal grant will fund the Einstein-Montefiore Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) at Einstein and Montefiore Medical Center, the University Hospital for the College, that together conduct some of the most important, fundamental research contributing to our understanding of how HIV infection causes AIDS, as well as develop and provide innovative treatment and support programs for patients. The increased funding received by the CFAR also renews its designation as an NIH CFAR site.

The award of this grant and the Centers designation as an NIH CFAR after a highly competitive review and selection process is a tribute to our position as one of the leading AIDS research programs in the country, says Dr. Harris Goldstein, director of the CFAR and professor of pediatrics and of microbiology & immunology, as well as Assistant Dean for Scientific Resources at Einstein and an attending physician in the Division of Allergy and Immunology at Montefiore. Our commitment to, and preeminent involvement in, AIDS research goes back more than 25 years, with Einstein and Montefiore investigators at the forefront of AIDS research and patient care since the emergence of the AIDS epidemic.

The CFAR coordinates the diverse research activities of hundreds of investigators at Einstein and Montefiore, who are working with over 70 NIH-funded faculty members representing more than 15 basic and clinical departments. The new grant will support the continued growth of AIDS research at both of the Centers research sites, in particular research programs involved in investigating three Core areas: HIV biology and therapeutics; HIV-associated pathogens and HIV-related epidemiology; and behavior and substance abuse. In addition, the grant will fund further expansion of Einstein and Mont
