  • being the first in the world to identify pediatric AIDS as a distinct disease and to establish a day-care center for children with AIDS;

  • identifying radioimmunotherapy (RIT) as a possible therapy for preventing or treating HIV infection;

  • developing a vaccine to combat extremely drug resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB), which affects many AIDS patients in developing nations because of their impaired immune systems;

  • establishing clinics and research programs in developing nations, such as Rwanda, Ethiopia, South Africa, India and Guatemala, to provide much-needed treatment, as well as education about prevention; and

  • genetically engineering immune cells to redirect their infection-fighting ability toward killing HIV-infected cells, a strategy which could ultimately lead to an entirely new approach for combating AIDS and other viral diseases.

By its design, the CFAR is set up to facilitate interactions between, and collaborations among, Einstein and Montefiore basic and clinical investigators, said Dr. Allen M.
