Study Uses Powerful Sequencing Technology to Study HIV Epidemic in Washington, DC

George Washington University

Despite significant progress against HIV/AIDS, the nation’s capital is still battling an HIV epidemic with rates that are five times higher than the national average. A study published today in the journal Scientific Reports uses powerful next-generation sequencing technology to learn more about how the virus is spreading and developing drug resistance in the District of Columbia.

A Brain Link to STI/HIV Sexual Risk: Young women with Low Condom Use During Sex Find Visual Sexual Cues Less Pleasant and Less Evocative

University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing

Data show that young adult women in the United States have high rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) that increase their risk of HIV. Though epidemiologic and behavioral factors for risk have been studied, we know very little about brain factors that may be linked to STI/ HIV sexual risk.

Researchers Reverse HIV Latency, Important Scientific Step Toward Cure

University of North Carolina School of Medicine

Overcoming HIV latency – activating HIV in CD4+ T cells that lay dormant – is a needed step toward a cure. Scientists at UNC-Chapel Hill, Emory University, and Qura Therapeutics – a partnership between UNC and ViiV Healthcare – showed it’s possible to drive HIV out of latency in two animal models.

Newswise: Blood Stem Cell Research

Blood Stem Cell Research

University of Delaware

A nanoparticle carrier system that could eliminate the need for bone marrow transplants, which are both expensive and difficult for patients to undergo. The University of Delaware's Emily Day, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering, is developing a platform that could treat stem cells directly without the need to remove them from the body.
