New Study Probes Link Between HIV Drugs and Vascular Disease
RCBU Faculty member Marvin Doyley, Ph.D., is a part of a multidisciplinary team that was recently awarded a $3.8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to better understand why individuals who receive anti-retroviral treatment for HIV are at greater risk for heart disease and stroke.
The study will use a new ultrasound technology developed by Professor Doyley's group for one of the key measurements in the study -- tracking the thickness and stiffness of the carotid artery. Read more about the project here.
