The National Institutes of Health has awarded a consortium of leading vaccine researchers at Emory University and partner institutions
a $26 million grant aimed at developing an effective HIV/AIDS vaccine.  The Emory-led consortium received the highest score among applicants for this competitive award, the largest ever for the Emory School of Medicine Department of Pathology.

The five-year program, led by GRA Eminent Scholar Eric Hunter, Ph.D., will focus on simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) in nonhuman primates to better understand disease transmission and immune response.  SIV is similar to HIV in humans. GRA Eminent Scholars Max Cooper and Guido Silvestri are also part of the consortium.  Read more here> and here>
