New pilot studies integrated to CanCURE's scientific program

Pilot projects have been integrated to the CanCURE research program for the 2016-17 period. These innovative projects will introduce concepts and address questions in the field of HIV Cure research which are new to the Team's scientific endeavours. These projects will be conducted by CanCURE Investigators Dr. Petronela Ancuta (CHUM Research Centre, Montréal) and Dr. Jean-Pierre Routy (Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre, Montréal), as well as by Dr. Reina Bendayan (University of Toronto). The pilot projects they will pursue are:
