Date:7/12/2011

Wednesday July 13, 2011 (Geneva, Switzerland) -- The International AIDS Society (IAS) and the US National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) today announced the recipients of their third annual joint research fellowships. Recipients of the prestigious awards will receive US$75,000 each to advance scientific understanding of the linkages between drug use and HIV while fostering multinational research.

Young researchers from China and Indonesia will be awarded post-doctoral fellowships to pursue outstanding research in the field. (1) IAS/NIDA research fellowships are awarded to junior scientists for 18 months for post-doctoral training and to well-established HIV researchers for eight months of professional development, both at institutes excelling in research on drug use and HIV.

Presentation of the IAS/NIDA fellowships will take place in a fortnight on Wednesday 20 July 2011 at the 6th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, Italy.

The fellowships ceremony will take place immediately before the Plenary Session (08:45-11:00) where NIDA Director Dr Nora D Volkow will give a keynote presentation Ending HIV Transmission Among Drug Users by 2015.
