Igho Ofotokun, Anandi Sheth, and Gina Wingood were awarded new NIH U01 funding in 2019 for the Atlanta MACS/WIHS Combined Cohort Study Clinical Research Site (1U01HL146241-01).



The new award combines activities of Emory's former Women's Interagency HIV Study (WIHS) project and the national Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS) to: a) provide leadership in the development of unified science protocols; b) serve as a local reading center and support laboratory for studies; and c) leverage Emory's research infrastructure to implement the CCS protocols by retaining current participants from the former WHIS, recruiting new participants from under-represented minority groups, and engaging Emory scientists and the local community in CCS science and activities.
