Researchers are in the process of recruiting participants for human trials that will begin soon. The research will be conducted under the umbrella of the Meharry Clinical and Translational Research Center (MeTRC). In 2009, Meharry was awarded a $21.4 million grant from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) to establish MeTRC, which will help accelerate the process of turning laboratory discoveries into actual cures and treatments used by patients.

MeTRC is a “center without walls” comprised of the Center for AIDS Health Disparities Research, the Center for Women’s Health Research and the Participant and Clinical Interactions Resource. Al-Hendy and Dr. James E.K. Hildreth serve as the principal investigators of this institutional grant.
