Miriam Hospital Wins $2.4M Grant To Continue HIV/AIDS Research
The Miriam Hospital has received another multimillion dollar grant from the National Institutes of Health to support HIV and AIDS research. The money will fund research into new treatments.
The Miriam is the state’s largest provider of HIV and AIDS care. The grant of $2.4 million dollars is a renewal that will help the institution continue its work as part of a multi-site aids research consortium, called the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) Network. That group’s work helped pioneer a new way to keep pregnant mothers from transmitting HIV to their babies.
Dr. Karen Tashima is the Miriam's lead researcher on the project, through which more than 1500 patients with AIDS or HIV have access to experimental treatments.
