Fort Lauderdale based Campbell Foundation awards grant to The George Washington University in Washington D.C. 


Researchers hope to identify HIV biomarkers


One of the major challenges in the battle to eradicate AIDS has been the inability to target dormant HIV viruses. To do so, scientists need to learn about the specific characteristics, called biomarkers, of the cells that carry these dormant/latent viruses so that during treatment uninfected "bystander" cells are not killed as well.


Researchers at The George Washington University have been working toward identifying these biomarkers, which they believe to be the first step down the road to finding a cure for AIDS.


The Campbell Foundation in Fort Lauderdale, FL is pleased to announce it has awarded scientists at The George Washington University a $79,375 grant to help further this groundbreaking research. If successful, it could open new avenues for better pharmaceutical interventions in the quest to find a cure for AIDS.
