MERIT award from NIH goes to Michael Emerman's HIV research

July 5, 2001

Dr. Michael Emerman, an investigator in the Human Biology Division, received a Method to Extend Research in Time (MERIT) Award from the National Institutes of Health for his laboratory's work on the molecular mechanisms of infection by HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

MERIT awards provide outstanding NIH grant recipients with five years of funding for innovative research projects followed by two to five years of support. The MERIT funding extension process eliminates the administrative burden of the lengthy NIH grant renewal process.

Emerman's award builds on extensive studies he and colleagues have performed on viral genes that enable HIV to multiply successfully inside human cells.

Emerman received the award from NIH's Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which funds research aimed at developing better ways to diagnose, treat and prevent the infectious, immunologic and allergic diseases
