Spotlight on our Faculty Grant Winners
"The pilot grant we received has resulted in the first evidence that HIV infected patients who smoke tobacco are at increased risk of developing tuberculosis compared to non-smokers. This association is well documented in HIV-negative smokers, but in South Africa, where HIV is the primary driver for TB, other factors are rarely considered. This evidence shows that traditional TB risk factors are important in this setting as well. These data have lead to an NIH sponsored smoking cessation trial among HIV-infected smokers in South Africa."
-- Jonathan Golub, PhD, MPH Faculty Grant winner
"The pilot grant is going to be critical in developing a new line of research in disabilities in the developing world--especially in Africa. I hope that this will be the start of a new stream of work and capacity development in Africa from Johns Hopkins."
-- Adnan Hyder, PhD, MPH, MBBS, Faculty Grant winner
