Congressman Boyle Announces Grant to Temple University for HIV-related Brain Disorders
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Brendan F. Boyle (PA-02) released the following statement announcing that the Department of Health and Human Services has granted $79,250 to Temple University for research on improving treatment of HIV-related neurological problems:
“I offer my sincerest congratulations to the researchers at Temple University for their receipt of this important grant. The past decades have seen incredible strides in HIV treatment and survival rates, but that’s no reason to step off the gas. For the 20,000 Philadelphians and 36 million others around the globe living with HIV, these treatments can go a long way to alleviate their symptoms and improve their quality of life. I applaud Temple University and the Department of Health and Human Services for working toward better treatment for HIV, and I’m doing everything I can in Congress to help.”
The grant comes from the Department of Health and Human Services’ National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
