Collaborating for a Cure
Placing the search for a cure for
HIV/AIDS firmly at the center of its research efforts, amfAR has created the
amfAR Research Consortium on HIV Eradication (ARCHE). This grant program supports
collaborative teams of biomedical researchers exploring strategies for
eradicating HIV infection.
“We’ve seen great strides in our collective
of how HIV could potentially be eradicated.”
—amfAR CEO Kevin Robert Frost.
"amfAR has a long and
successful history of bringing people together to take on the big challenges of
HIV/AIDS," says Dr. Rowena Johnston, amfAR’s vice president and director
of research. "We’re tremendously excited by this consortium. And we’re
confident that this collaborative approach will create a synergy that produces
results that exceed what can be generated in individual laboratories."
