U. of Pittsburgh
wins $16 million grant for HIV research

The University of Pittsburgh's medical school won a $16 million grant to study the interaction of HIV and other cells. The five-year grant, by the Pittsburgh Center for HIV Protein Interactions, will go toward investigating what happens to the AIDS virus structurally and atomically once it meets the cell, according to the Pittsburgh Business Times.

The grant comes from the National Institutes of Health.

Angela Gronenborn, director of the center and structural biology department chair, said in a statement that the virus's known interaction with cells is still a mystery once it attaches itself to the human genome.

"By elucidating the important events during this period, we believe we'll learn a great deal about how the virus can be stopped," Gronenborn said. (The Advocate)
