USF Health gets $1.3 million grant

Tampa Bay Business Journal - 3:15 PM EDT Wednesday, September 12, 2007

A $1.36 million research training grant awarded to USF Health from the National Institutes of Health will be used to help fight AIDS in India.

USF Health received the five-year grant Sept. 11 from the NIH's Fogarty International Center, according to a release. It will be used to create an interdisciplinary training program focused on the biomedical, behavioral, cultural and ethical aspects of detecting, treating and preventing HIV/AIDS among adolescents in India. India ranks second worldwide, following South Africa, in the number of HIV and AIDS cases, the release said.

USF will partner with Vadodara Medical College in Gujarat, India, to teach Indian physicians, scientists, nurses and other health professionals how to conduct and evaluate community-based HIV clinical studies. The Fogarty project will draw on the expertise of USF's Tampa Bay Adolescent Medicine Trials Unit, one of 15 NIH-funded clinical sites across the country providing comprehensive services to HIV-infected adolescents.

USF Health includes the University of South Florida's colleges of medicine, nursing and public health; the schools of biomedical sciences as well as physical therapy and rehabilitation sciences; and the USF Physicians Group.
