Awarded Project: "Targeting Brain Macrophage Reservoirs of SIV during HAART"

Targeting Brain Macrophage Reservoirs of SIV during HAART

Dr. Marcelo Kuroda, in conjunction with the Eastern Virginia Medical School, received a five year award from the National Institute of Mental Health, NIH.  The overall goal of this proposal is to explore the role of long-lived brain perivascular macrophages (PVM) as the target cells for SIV infection in the central nervous system during the initial peak viremia and as a major reservoir of virus during chronic infection in the presence of HAART.
