Nina Lin, MD and Manish Sagar, MD, Receive NIH Award to Combat HIV-induced Chronic Inflammation


 

 

 

Congratulations to Nina Lin, MD, Assistant Professor in the Section of Infectious Disease and Manish Sagar, MD, Associate Professor in the Section of Infectious Disease, who along with their colleague Suryaram (Rahm) Gummuluru, PhD, Associate Professor of Microbiology, received a five-year, $3.8 million RO1 Award from the National Institute of Aging (NIA)/National Institutes of Health (NIH). They will be researching whether persistent HIV RNA expression in older HIV+ individuals contributes to chronic inflammation and immune exhaustion resulting in an accelerated aging phenotype. The findings from this study could eventually allow for the development of effective strategies to decrease or reverse the persistent HIV RNA expression dependent induction of inflammation that drives disease pathogenesis in the growing population of older individuals living with HIV.
