REIDS: Finding a Common Ground Will Enhance HIV Researches

The Research Education Institute for Diverse Scholars (REIDS) is a new research and education institution in Yale, which has been provided with $1.3 million in order to launch some efforts towards increasing the number of HIV scientists. What makes it different from other institutions is that REIDS aims at increasing the scientists from the regions where HIV is a very common type of infection.

Mainly these patients emerge from regions where the population is not stable, neither on the economic level nor on the racial one. This kind of population is encouraged through the REIDS to take part in the experiments and the researches of the HIV. The proactive contribution of the people would result in a better quality of studies as well as a better quality of life of the disadvantaged people.

Barbara Guthrie, an Associate Dean For Academic Affairs at the Yale School of Nursing and one of the founders of the REIDS, said the idea aims at eliminating the gaps in mentoring and research education in the field of HIV, especially for scientists in these groups of people.

NIDA Director, Dr. Nora D. Volkow said, "These important and wide reaching research grants will focus on identifying individuals with HIV within the criminal justice system and linking them to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) during periods of incarceration and after community re-entry".
