National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Announces HIV Vaccine Initiative Awards

August 22, 2012

"Researchers at 14 institutions will explore new approaches to designing a vaccine against HIV with awards that are part of an anticipated four-year, $34.8 million initiative, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases [NIAID] announced [Tuesday]," the Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog reports. "The awards reflect directions suggested by previous research, as well as the need to explore new avenues toward a vaccine, NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci told Science Speaks," the blog writes. "'There are some remaining important facts that we don't know about HIV,' Fauci said," adding, "There are many fundamental questions that remain unanswered," according to the blog. "The awards are intended to allow researchers to ask those questions, he said," the blog notes (Barton, 8/21).
