New York: U.S. National Institutes of Health Names University of Rochester a Center for AIDS Research
May 13, 2013
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has designated the University of Rochester a Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), which means the university will receive $7.5 million throughout the next five years for HIV/AIDS work. The newest of 18 U.S. CFARs, Rochester will use the funding to develop and nurture the careers of young HIV/AIDS researchers and to form collaborations that will lead to "high-impact discoveries." One such alliance will link the Department of Neurology at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) and the Institute of Optics on the River Campus. To qualify as an NIH CFAR, an institution already must have a specified level of existing funding; the University of Rochester had $15.3 million in HIV/AIDS funding for 2011.
