Additional Details

In 2015 the Yerkes National Primate Research Center (YNPRC) established a translational research program called ERASE AIDS (Emory Research Alliance to Stop/Eradicate AIDS). This new program builds on the existing expertise and scientific resources on the Emory campus to conduct transformative studies aimed at finding a cure for HIV infection. The program is based at the YNPRC and has been established as a collaboration between the YNPRC, the Emory University School of Medicine, the Emory Center for AIDS Research (CFAR), and the Office of the Provost. ERASE AIDS is directed by Dr. Guido Silvestri, a world leader in AIDS research, and involves several highly recognized scientists including Dr. Raymond Schinazi, the inventor of some of the most widely used anti-HIV drugs, Dr. R. Paul Johnson, the YNPRC Director, Dr. Rama Rao Amara, Dr. Ann Chahroudi, Dr. Eric Hunter, and Dr. Mirko Paiardini, among others. ERASE AIDS scientists are the recipients of over ten individual and multi-center research grants focusing on curing HIV infection supported by the NIH, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR), thus representing one of the most productive and creative scientific communities in this highly competitive field of research.
