Investigators in UVA’s Myles H. Thaler Center for AIDS and Human Retrovirus Research work within a community of infectious disease and immunology experts that ranks among the best in the nation. We address fundamental questions about how AIDS develops and how HIV replicates at the cellular and molecular level.
The center has faculty associated with the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Cancer Biology, the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics and the Division of Infectious Diseases and International Health of the Department of Medicine.
The center also has collaborative projects with investigators worldwide, including several at African Universities, where research is focused on the global HIV epidemic.
The VUARC was formed to promote interactions and collaborative research cooperation among universities in Virginia conducting research on HIV and AIDS.
