Recruited from George Washington University, Dr. Douglas Nixon and Dr. Brad Jones have brought breakthrough research on HIV/AIDS to the WDOM’s Division of Infectious Diseases. Drs. Nixon and Jones will be expanding the division’s already strong standing of more than 30 years in pioneering cutting-edge clinical trials for HIV/AIDS. Dr Nixon serves as the Principal Investigator of an NIH-funded $28 million grant in support of the Believe in a Cure Martin Delaney Collaboratory, and Dr. Jones is a collaborator on the project that involves a dozen other scientists from Mexico, Canada, and Brazil. Drs. Nixon and Jones are driving multiple lines of research inside their laboratory in an effort to translate breakthrough findings into life-saving therapies for HIV/AIDS – and ultimately a cure.
