The Campbell Foundation recently announced that its first grant of 2015 has been awarded to researchers who have already made great strides toward the goal of treating the neurological complications of HIV such as dementia, neuropathy and a number of psychological conditions including depression.

 

The Lauren Sciences research team at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel are the recipients of a $100,000 grant that will allow them to continue their research to prove that they can show efficacy by delivery of the HIV medication tenofovir through the blood brain barrier in mice using V-Smart™, a technology developed with New York-based biotechnology company Lauren Sciences.

Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute is New Name for Baptist Health's Integrated Orthopedic, Sports Medicine Services


Baptist Health South Florida has integrated its orthopedic and sports medicine services and named the program Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute. The new name reflects Baptist Health's team approach to providing high-quality patient care. The program, which was founded by UHZ Sports Medicine Institute, is comprised of Board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic physicians who are recognized locally, nationally and internationally as leaders in orthopedics and the care of athletes and treatment of sports injuries.

 

Included in the name change is Doctors Hospital Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, which for many years has served as the hub of Baptist Health's orthopedics and sports medicine program. Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute will combine its resources of experienced physicians and leading-edge treatments and technology to provide advanced orthopedic and sports medicine care at five Baptist Health locations - Doctors Hospital, Baptist Hospital of Miami, Baptist Children's Hospital, South Miami Hospital and West Kendall Baptist Hospital.

 

"The orthopedic and sports medicine program at Doctors Hospital has a long-standing reputation for exceptional patient care and physician leadership," said Wayne Brackin, Executive VP and COO of Baptist Health.
