Fellows gets $2.49M for HIV research
Dr. Lesley Fellows, Interim Chair, Department of Neurology & Neurosurgery and clinician-scientist at The Neuro has received $ 2.49 million as part of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research HIV/AIDS Research Initiative to lead a team of experts in neuroscience, epidemiology, and HIV to carry out innovative, action-oriented research in order to improve brain health in HIV-infected individuals.
Fellows’ funding is part of the Harper Government’s $13 million investment over five years to support new research initiatives to address HIV/AIDS in Canada. This funding includes $3 million to support two community-based HIV/AIDS research centres, and $10 million to support four research teams that will aim to help Canadians living with HIV by examining the link between HIV and other chronic health issues specifically related to aging and mental health.
