UNC gets $1.7M to study HIV testing
The Chapel Hill Herald
A team of researchers from the UNC Institute for Global Health & Infectious Diseases has received a $1.7 million grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to study novel HIV testing methods to detect acute HIV infection and target sexual networks to curb the spread of HIV in North Carolina. The four-year study will assess the performance and cost-effectiveness of a new, fourth-generation test to diagnose acute HIV infection.
