Rutgers School of Public Health Instructor, Dr. Stephanie Shiau, received the Pediatric HIV/AIDS (human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome) Cohort Study (PHACS) Early Career Investigator Mentored Research Award from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The award is given annually.
The award aims to support the development of early career investigators in the field of maternal/child, adolescent, or young adult HIV research, advancing the mission of PHACS.
Dr. Shiau will use the award to further her research to address the health and well-being of women and children living with or affected by HIV.
“I am honored to receive the PHACS Early Career Investigator Mentored Research Award,” said Dr. Shiau. “Through this award, our team will acquire data on biomarkers of inflammation during pregnancy in women living with HIV and examine the relationship between these biomarkers and infant growth outcomes.”Tags: Friday Letter Submission, Publish on November 22
