The Martin Delaney Collaboratory for HIV Cure Research NIH program supports basic, translational, and clinical research focused on developing strategies to achieve an HIV cure. The program was established in honor of late HIV/AIDS activist Martin Delaney and launched in 2011. The first iteration of the program included three collaboratories and was expanded to include three additional collaboratories in 2016. In total, there are six Martin Delaney Collaboratories funded to advance the science of HIV cure research.
The BELIEVE Collaboratory or Bench to Bed Enhanced Lymphocyte Infusions to Engineer Viral Eradication is led by Dr. Jones and Dr. Douglas Nixon. Dr. Jones serves as Co-Principal Investigator of this collaboratory. Dr. Jones’ research focuses on how to maximally harness the immune system to contribute to the elimination of HIV reservoirs that persist in individuals on long-term therapy, which will inform efforts to cure HIV infection.
