Claflin, University of South Carolina Team to Curb Disparities in HIV/AIDS, Cancer

November 17, 2005

The University of South Carolina in Columbia and Claflin University in Orangeburg will use a five-year, $7.5 million federal grant to study disparities in the incidence of AIDS and cancer. One project will explore why human papillomavirus persists in some women while it lasts only a short time in others. "The link between HPV and cervical cancer is evident," said Saundra Glover, director of the Institute for Partnerships to Eliminate Health Disparities at USC. "To the extent that we can reduce HPV and other STDs, then we can reduce other outcomes to include cervical cancer." This is the third such partnership between a major research institution and a historically black college in South Carolina.
