NIH Funds Creation of New Lab Model for TB/HIV Research

Texas Biomedical Research Institute

When people suffer from both HIV and TB, it creates “one of the biggest health problems in the world,” according to Texas Biomed Assistant Professor Smita Kulkarni, Ph.D. Now, the National Institutes of Health is funding a two-year study by Texas Biomed scientists developing a lab model that mimics the early stages of the co-infection of these two diseases.

Researcher Receives NIH Grant to Develop Rapid, Reliable and Low-cost HIV Test

Florida Atlantic University

HIV testing is expensive ($50 to $200 per test), technically complex, and requires trained technicians. Researchers are developing a rapid, disposable, automated, and low-cost HIV viral load assay to increase timely access to HIV care and to improve treatment outcomes. The technology is highly sensitive, inexpensive (less than $1), and quick (results in 45 minutes or less). Moreover, the technology is highly stable, and doesn’t require refrigeration or a regular electric supply to enable HIV viral load at point-of-care settings.

Boise State and Molecular Testing Labs to Revolutionize HIV Testing and Treatment

Boise State University

New testing methods being developed by Molecular Testing Labs and Boise State University utilize RNA molecular signatures, which can be detected using cutting edge technology and lab techniques. This means that people at risk for contracting HIV can get tested much earlier than current methods – typically within the same week as the potential exposure.
