The interdisciplinary research team at the Johns Hopkins NIMH Center for Novel Therapeutics for HIV-associated Cognitive Disorders is dedicated to studying such conditions as HIV-associated dementia, asymptomatic neurocognitive impairments and mild neurocognitive disorders. We aim to translate discoveries of the pathophysiological mechanisms of these conditions into novel therapeutics, as well as provide resources to other HIV researchers across Johns Hopkins Medicine institutions.
Hear From Our Researchers
#TomorrowsDiscoveries: Living a Fuller Life with HIV – Dr. Justin McArthur
40% of those living with HIV experience memory, attention and decision-making impairments. Dr. McArthur has studied the disease for over 35 years and continues to explore therapies to prevent or reverse these cognitive impairments.
#TomorrowsDiscoveries: Regulating the Brain’s Inflammatory Response – Dr. Norman Haughey
In response to certain infections, the immune system triggers inflammation. Over long periods of time, this inflammation can harm the nervous system. Dr. Haughey's lab is working to uncover the mechanisms behind this response.
