These are uncertain times for public funding for HIV/AIDS research in the U.S. and around the world. Now more than ever, we need support from the community for research happening right here at the IU School of Medicine.
LEADERSHIP: The Indiana University School of Medicine has been involved in the development of every HIV/AIDS treatment beginning with AZT in the 1980’s. IUSOM faculty collaborate with top researchers across the country and around the globe.
HOPE: Research is hope. IU is currently conducting laboratory and bedside research that will change the future. We want a cure for HIV/AIDS.
KEY PRIORITIES AT IU:
CHILDREN WITH HIV/AIDS
IU is providing medical care for children with HIV/AIDS in Indiana and in Africa.
Our efforts include improved treatment strategies, effective prevention programs, and innovative medical and psychosocial support networks for children and teens to promote health and prevent new infections.
These efforts are led by Dr. Rachel Vreeman, MD, MS, and her team.
Our laboratory and clinical researchers continue on the path to finding a cure for HIV/AIDS. Understanding the complex interaction between the virus and the human immune system will help in the development of curative medicines.
These efforts are led by Dr. Andy (Qigui) Yu, MD, PhD and his team.
AGING WITH HIV/AIDS
Advances in treatment mean that people are living longer with HIV. We focus on helping older adults with HIV improve their quality of life through personalized treatment and focused care for all of their medical problems, including kidney disease and cardiovascular disease.
These efforts are led by Dr. Samir Gupta, MD, MS and his team.
We can't sit quietly by. We are rallying people together to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic through research at the Indiana University School of Medicine.
