Date:6/27/2012

PROVIDENCE, R.I. The Miriam Hospital has received an $8.5 million, five-year renewal grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to support the continued growth of the Lifespan/Tufts/Brown Center for AIDS Research (CFAR).

Based at The Miriam Hospital, the Lifespan/Tufts/Brown CFAR is one of just 21 centers located at leading AIDS research institutions nationwide, and is one of only 10 CFAR sites to receive continuous NIH support since the program's inception in 1988. The CFAR is nationally recognized for its expertise in the management of HIV infection in women, delivery of HIV care in the correctional system, clarification of the nutritional consequences of HIV infection and management of HIV/tuberculosis co-infections in the developing world. CFAR investigators have provided leadership for national inter-CFAR working groups in each of these areas.

"The continuous funding of our center reflects the strength and excellence of our HIV/AIDS research program, the seamless collaboration among our institutions and the ingenuity and innovation of our researchers working to stem the tide of the AIDS pandemic," said Charles C.J.
