Pitt receives $2.8 million to train HIV/AIDS researchers in Mozambique, Brazil and India
Date:4/17/2009

tt team will focus on training researchers in epidemiological methods to better understand the failure of antiretroviral treatment and answer basic questions about HIV prevalence. In Brazil, ranked second in number of reported AIDS cases in the Americas, training will focus on treatment and vaccine trials, tuberculosis research related to AIDS and the effectiveness of antiretroviral therapy in public clinics. In India, where there are 2.5 million HIV-infected people, training will center on laboratory studies on the molecular mechanisms of HIV and the development of anti-HIV vaccines using Indian strains.

The University of Pittsburgh received one of seven AITRP grants recently awarded. The AITRP has trained nearly 2,000 researchers overseas, most of whom remain in their countries to continue HIV/AIDS research, train young scientists and provide leadership to their governments on health issues. Co-directing the program with Dr. Harrison is Phalguni Gupta, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health.
