NYStar Grant Enables NYUCD to
Recruit Senior AIDS Researcher
 
NYUCD has received a $750,000 award from the New York State Office of Science Technology and Academic Research (NYSTAR) Faculty Development Program, which assists universities in the recruitment and retention of leading research faculty in science and technology fields with strong commercial potential. The NYStar grant has enabled NYUCD to recruit and renovate laboratory space for Dr. Daniel Malamud, a senior scientist specializing in anti-HIV agents and oral-based diagnostics, which would be used to detect multiple oral pathogens, including HIV and bioterror agents. The research may also contribute to the development of new anti-HIV drugs. (See related story)

"We are honored to partner with New York State in recruiting and retaining leading research faculty in science and technology fields," said Dean Alfano.
