NIH awards major grant to Chicago-based consortium to create center for AIDS research
Date:9/8/2009

Chicago will direct the basic science and the social and behavioral sciences cores. The basic science core will provide access to, and training in, state-of-the-art technologies for laboratory investigations in virology, molecular biology, immunology and other areas. The social and behavioral sciences core will support research involving social, behavioral and psychosocial issues and facilitate studies and interventions in local, national and international communities.

"Numerous scientists and community activists in our three institutions have been working largely independently to reduce the scourge of HIV/AIDS. This research initiative will provide opportunities for us to share and build upon our varied expertise and perspectives. I fully expect new prevention and treatment strategies to arise from this exciting collaboration," said Robert Bailey, PhD, professor of epidemiology at the UIC School of Public Health and co-director of the new AIDS research center.

Cook County Health and Hospitals System will direct the clinical core, assisting investigators with clinical and epidemiologic research and facilitating translation of basic science discoveries into the patient care realm. The Ruth M. Rothstein CORE Center for the Prevention, Care and Research of Infectious Diseases, a partnership between Rush and Cook County, sees more than 5,000 HIV-infected individuals each year from diverse communities and has extensive expertise in HIV clinical care and clinical research.

"By including Cook County Health and Hospitals System, the outstanding research team brought together by this grant will be able to address issues that increase HIV-associated morbidity and mortality among the disadvantaged minority populations we serve. That is an extremely important mission for the new center," said Dr. Audrey French, director of the clinical core and director of research at Cook County's CORE Center.
