CanCURE

The Canadian HIV Cure Enterprise (CanCURE) is a research collaboratory focused on studying HIV persistence during antiretroviral therapy and developing strategies towards a sustainable HIV remission. Our innovative scientific program is supported by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
