Waters Gifts Research Equipment to University at Buffalo to Combat HIV/AIDS
Date:12/21/2011

of UB's New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences and Professor in the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

"Waters is honored to make a second donation of our value-added research tools to such an important international health program," said Dr. Mark Bruns, Senior Director of Waters Clinical Business Operations.  "Waters is committed to making its leading technologies accessible to researchers who can translate its power of discovery, and a deeper understanding of disease and disease management, into far-reaching impact around the globe."

The donation of equipment by Waters to the University is a continuing effort to support the UB/UZ AITRP directed by Dr. Morse in collaboration with Dr. Charles Chiedza Maponga, Director of UZ's School of Pharmacy, who also holds an academic appointment at UB.

"The UB/UZ program has been an important component in recent years in turning the destructive tide of HIV/AIDS in Zimbabwe. We have the human resources, we're getting the brick and mortar facilities … all we need now are more tools," Dr. Maponga told the audience at the ceremony.

In his remarks, Dr. James Hakim, a physician and lead medical investigator for HIV research programs in Zimbabwe recounted the dark days of the 1990's when the morbidity and mortality rate of AIDS "was a source of great anxiety and disappointment for physicians." The situation improved dramatically after the year 2000 when antiretroviral drugs came on the scene and 350,000 people in Zimbabwe entered treatment.

Commenting on the academic/industry partnership between UB, UZ and Waters Corporation, Dr. Hakim said, "As academic leaders, we play a critical role in making things happen and improving the quality of life of patients. I would like to extend my most profound gratitude to everyone involved
