September 22, 2021
Université du Québec à Montréal Professor Ali Jenabian has received over $2.85M in combined funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) for studies focusing on the health needs of HIV patients. One study will examine the role of the expanded endocannabinoid system and gut microbiome in chronic inflammation and co-morbidities in those living with HIV, while another is focused on the same objectives but with a control group of people who do not have HIV. The other two projects will study the effects of COVID-19 vaccinations on patients who are living in HIV. UQAM (QC)
