New Funding for HIV relevant research

Zvi GrossmanTogether with Prof. Zvi Grossman (Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University), we just got funding from the Office of AIDS Research of the NIAID to study how basic mechanisms of Memory T cell homeostasis may be exploited to enhance clearance of latent Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). The funding is to develop proof-of-principle for a (counterintuitive) strategy which hinges on the fact that memory T cells are often a stable reservoir for HIV even after treatments such as HAART.
