TB / Pneumonia
Extensive TB pneumonia in an HIV+ subject (Pilot project: Alcoholism and MDR TB in HIV patients in Botswana: Drs. N. Zetola and R. Collman.

The major goal of the Developmental Core is the promotion of AIDS- and HIV-related research at the University of Pennsylvania, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and The Wistar Institute by providing a source of funding for pilot projects. The Developmental Core supports short-term (one year) projects in emerging areas of HIV research, including new research related to the recruitment of new investigators, research by established investigators who are turning their attention to AIDS, and research by AIDS/HIV investigators who are undertaking studies that represent a significant departure from their previous work.

We are currently accepting applications for CFAR Developmental Pilot Awards.
