University of Alabama Receives $7.5 Million NIH Grant to Continue HIV Research

August 13, 2009

The National Institutes of Health has awarded the University of Alabama at Birmingham's Center for AIDS Research a five-year, $7.5 million grant "to continue researching, preventing and treating HIV, the medical center announced Tuesday," the Birmingham News reports. The award "is a renewal grant that keeps UAB among 20 centers for AIDS research nationwide. UAB was among the seven original AIDS research centers established in 1988 by the federal government in response to the growing threat of HIV," the article states (Parks, 8/12). Michael Saag, director of the UAB research center, said, "This award enables us to keep moving forward into those areas, projects and techniques used to fight HIV and adapt to and explore projects that I consider leading-edge or uncharted" (DeButts, Birmingham Business Journal, 8/11).
