Research Summary

Dr. Margolis is the leader of CARE:  The Collaboratory of AIDS Researchers for Eradication. CARE is a New Vision for HIV Research. CARE aims to do what no single laboratory or company can do: pursue a comprehensive collaborative search for approaches to eradicate HIV. CARE brings together some of the leading minds from top U.S. academic institutions in the field of HIV latency as well as the pharmaceutical industry in a joint consortium whose mission is to find a cure for HIV. By working together and leveraging research and resources across this consortium, the Collaboratory gives members access to technologies and tools to accelerate the work of finding a cure. CARE’s efforts honor Martin Delaney, a pioneer in the field of HIV research and activism. This collaboration, much like his life’s work, will bring cutting edge technology and the collaborative research endeavors of the leaders in the field of HIV research together to accelerate the development and dissemination of promising new HIV treatments.
