Global health R&D at work in New York

The International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) is working to develop HIV vaccines and other prevention tools. Research by IAVI and partners has yielded insights into how the immune system attempts to control the virus, how HIV evades immune defenses, how disease progression varies by virus strain, and how some people living with HIV naturally produce antibodies against a broad array of HIV types. IAVI is supporting development and testing of 11 vaccine candidates.

Reflects USG funding received by entities in state including academic and research institutions, product development partnerships, other nonprofits, select corporations, and government research institutions, as well as self-funding or other federal agency transfers received by federal agencies located in state; but excludes pharmaceutical industry data which is aggregated and anonymized in the survey for confidentiality purposes.
