UAlbany: Partners on $16 Million HIV Initiative

A team of faculty from the University at Albany School of Public Health (SPH), including Drs. Mark Kuniholm, Allison Appleton, Elizabeth Vásquez, David Holtgrave and Eli Rosenberg are partnering with SUNY Downstate Medical Center (SUNY Downstate) on a $16 million project funded by the National Institutes of Health to expand the understanding of the physical, mental and psychosocial impacts of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Unlike in the 1980s, HIV infections today can be safely controlled with antiretroviral treatment, but HIV still makes patients more susceptible to chronic conditions and worsens symptoms. The SPH team is comprised of experts in multiple disciplines within public health that will work with the Brooklyn Clinical Research Site at SUNY Downstate on data analytics, cardiovascular disease and aging as they pertain to people living with HIV.
