The innovations that have been made in the treatment of HIV and AIDS are the result of physicians and researchers who work together to break through barriers and push science forward in the hopes of finding a cure.
Montefiore Medical Center's mission is to pursue better treatments and the prevention of infectious disease, like HIV, through extensive studies and investigative work. Many of our researchers are also recipients of grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to better understand concepts such as antimicrobial drug mechanisms and microbial pathogenesis for these diseases.
The medical center also boasts one of the largest teams of researchers and specialists conducting translational, laboratory and clinical research relating to various areas of interest, including complications of HIV infection, resistance to treatment and long-term side effects.
Clinical trials are a critical part of the research process and provide patients access to promising new medications and treatments before they become available by prescription. Participation is completely voluntary.
