Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that SUNY Downstate Medical Center has received a seven-year, $16 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to fund a new study to expand our understanding of the physical, mental, and psychosocial impacts of HIV and prolonged exposure to anti-retroviral therapy on long-term survivors with HIV. The study provides a unique perspective on how HIV and its treatments make patients more susceptible to chronic conditions or worsens their symptoms from these diseases.
