Drexel University College of Medicine has a substantial portfolio of research in HIV, virology, vaccinology, and infectious and inflammatory diseases more broadly. Nationally and internationally recognized faculty conduct NIH supported research in every aspect of HIV/AIDS, from the most fundamental mechanisms at the bench to preclinical models and in human patients. Funding includes major programs from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases such as the Martin Delaney Collaboratory for HIV Cure Research; a program project grant to develop preventatives and therapeutics; and the largest T32 training grant in NeuroAIDS. These projects are complemented by extramural programs for community engagement and public health with our clinic population. The College also received highly competitive funding for basic, translational, clinical and population research for COVID-19. Drexel COM is a consortium member of the National Cancer Institute- designated Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University and engaged actively in studies of the oncogenic properties of HIV and other viruses.
