Research group is based at the Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine, College of Health Sciences, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, South Africa. We are also associated to the Centre for the Aids Programme of Research in South Africa (CAPRISA) and the Africa Health Research Institute (AHRI). Bioinformatics servers are kindly mantained by the South African Medical Research Council (MRC).
The concept behind this newsletter is that anyone with 15 minutes to spare can learn about our research work. In this Jan-Mar 2017 issue of our newsletter, we have included interesting open access publications, news, blogs, reports, tweets, and training information produced by our group.
The workshop is targeted at clinicians, clinical virologists and nurses working in the public sector who are currently involved in the treatment of patients with HIV and TB in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Patients coinfected with human T-cell lymphotropic virus 1 (HTLV-1) and HIV continue to have elevated CD4+ T-cell counts, even though there is no difference in their HIV viral load levels after antiretroviral therapy when compared with patients who just have HIV (Curr HIV Res 2017).
We cordially invites you to a seminar presented by Prof. Tulio de Oliveira, College of Health Sciences, UKZN & CAPRISA Research Associate, 17 March 2017, K-RITH building, Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine, Durban, South Africa
