MMG Faculty Part of National Collaboratory for HIV Cure Research

Supported by a new $25M award from the National Institutes of Health, the HIV/AIDS ‘BELIEVE’ project is a collaborative effort between researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, George Washington University's School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and 16 other institutions nationwide.  The goal of this collaborative project is to eliminate latent HIV reservoirs by stimulating the anti-HIV response of the immune system.
