Virology, Immunology & Microbiology Core

The VIM Core has added new services since its merger in November 2013, including testing for N. gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and Trichomonas. The new VIM Core will continue to provide users with state-of-the-art HIV, and now STD, testing in CAP/CLIA laboratories, laboratory support, and facilitating AIDS research among CFAR investigators at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, FHI 360, and RTI International.

Biostatistics Core

Michael Hudgens, Director of the Biostatistics Core, is organizing the break out sessions on HIV Biostatistics at this year's CFAR HIV Research in International Settings (CHRIS) Meeting, taking place in October in San Diego, California. The CHRIS meeting will cover results of international HIV research supported by several NIH-funded Centers for AIDS Research, as well as suggestions on improving research operations in resource-limited settings.

Social and Behavioral Science Core

Exemplifying its commitment to stimulate and promote new HIV-related research at UNC, FHI, and RTI, the SBS Core hosted a Fall networking event for multidisciplinary researchers to discuss integrating Implementation Science in to HIV research. Bryan Weiner (UNC), Catherine Rohweder (UNC), Oscar Fleming (National Implementation Research Network, Triangle Implementation Group), and Theresa Hoke (FHI 360) shared their expertise and insight with a crowd of over forty researchers, students, and others in the field of public health.
