Divider Rule Kudos to ...

Maud Mavigner      
       

... to Maud Mavigner for successfully drawing from her current CFAR-Yerkes co-funded award ("Inhibiting stemness pathways to reduce HIV persistence in long-lived latently-infected memory CD4+ T-cells") to score her first NIH funding, an R21: "Inhibiting the proliferation of the long-lived memory CD4+ T-cells by targeting Wnt and Notch pathways to disrupt HIV reservoir." (R21AI145650-01A1).

If successful, Maud's work will provide important new information on the biology of HIV/SIV persistence in memory CD4+ T-cells and may lead to a translational research program focusing on novel strategies for HIV eradication. Go Maud!

Anne Spaulding, and faculty from five other CFARs are pleased to announce the launch of the newly re-established and re-branded inter-CFAR Justice, Substance Use, and HIV/AIDS Involved Populations (J-SHIP) working group (formerly CFAR Collaborative on HIV in Corrections).

J-SHIP Mission: To bring together CFAR-affiliated researchers who are dedicated to improving HIV, substance use, and related health outcomes among justice-involved persons.

The J-SHIP working group will be hosting its inaugural meeting at the 13th Academic & Health Policy Conference on Correctional Health in Raleigh, North Carolina on April 2-3, 2020 and J-SHIP will support the attendance of one representative from each CFAR at this event.

HIV & AIDS in the United States: What's New from the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention

On September 3, the CDC released a suite of communication tools and resources that support their ongoing efforts to prevent HIV and help people with HIV stay healthy.


The new suite of resources include:
• A new website for the Let's Stop HIV Together campaign

• A new HIV Nexus website that provides clinicians with a credible source of information to help them stay abreast of the latest HIV recommendations and research, diagnose and treat patients as early as possible, and prevent new HIV transmissions.

• A combined HIV prevention services locator widget. The new widget combines four key HIV prevention services (HIV testing, PrEP, PEP, and condoms) in one locator.

• A new CDC HIV home page that guides visitors to unique content for consumers, clinicians, and public health partners.
