Main Objectives:

  • Facilitate collaborative research in HIV-related neuroscience, and specifically sustained CNS inflammation and metabolic derangements, among the widest possible range of investigators within the Johns Hopkins academic community to lead to an effective therapy for HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND).
  • Increase resources for HIV-related neurological therapeutics development at Johns Hopkins University, and to enhance the productivity of related HIV-related neuroscience research locally, nationally and internationally.
  • Encourage high-risk, innovative ‘developmental’ research, especially of a cross-disciplinary nature.
  • Provide resources for new investigators at all levels to enter the field of HIV neuroscience research, particularly with the aim of therapeutic development.
  • Provide education and training for HIV providers, patients, and investigators in clinical and research aspects of HAND.
