Division of AIDS-Related Diseases

The Division of AIDS-Related Research is comprised of two Resource Cores: the AIDS Virology Resource Core and AIDS Animal Model Core. Through these cores, the division supports the following programs: Core Research Program, Affiliate Research Program and Training Program.

The division includes both core and affiliate investigators with a broad spectrum of active research programs. The Core Research Program currently includes core investigators maintaining active research programs in the following areas:

  • Virology
  • Vaccine research
  • Immunology
  • Evaluation of anti-HIV drugs and microbicides
  • Animal models
  • Molecular Biology
  • Genomics

The Affiliate Research Program includes many research affiliates and collaborators outside of the Center who routinely utilize the Center’s scientific, technical, laboratory and animal resources. The Affiliate Research Program encompasses all aspects of AIDS-related research.

Training program
All members of the Core Research Program participate in the training of personnel conducting AIDS-related research. Besides training of students, fellows, research technologists and other professionals, members of division also host national and international visiting scholars, conduct seminars and organize research meetings to promote and utilize the intellectual and scientific resources at the Center.
