Founded in 2011 and led by Drs. Keith Jerome and Hans-Peter Kiem here at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, defeatHIV is a consortium of scientific investigators and clinicians from both public and private research organizations who are committed to finding a cure for HIV. We are supported through a program sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease in honor of AIDS activist Martin Delaney. This program, called the Martin Delaney Collaboratory: Towards an HIV-1 cure, focuses on providing support for curative HIV research strategies and fosters partnerships between public and private research organizations. defeatHIV is one of six funded Martin Delaney Collaboratories.
