The Campbell Foundation Awards $75,000 to HIV Research Team Funding to help with development of test to detect HIV drug resistance 
The Campbell Foundation, based in Ft. Lauderdale, has awarded a $75,000 grant to Dr. Robert Shafer, MD, professor of infectious diseases at the Stanford University School of Medicine and his team to build on their NIH-funded research. The grant will fund the addition of vital test enhancements that will better allow HIV care providers to make informed treatment decisions for patients who either are starting treatment or who are on treatment that is not working due to drug resistance.

"This grant will help in the development of an inexpensive point-of-care (POC) test to quickly determine a patient's antiretroviral therapy (ARV) drug resistance," said The Campbell Foundation's Executive Director Ken Rapkin. "We are excited about the possibilities associated with Dr. Shafer's research, particularly at a time when we are encountering an increase in drug resistance. The Campbell Foundation's focus is in funding groundbreaking research and we believe this dovetails with our mission."
