UB-UZ initiative at work

The University at Buffalo/University of Zimbabwe (UB-UZ) initiative has been active since 2002. In 2005, the two institutions adopted a formal agreement to address clinical research and training needs.

The UB-UZ HIV Research Training Program is expanding the capacity for clinical research in Zimbabwe. The postgraduate fellowship results in well-trained investigators who contribute to and participate in multidisciplinary project teams.

UB's globally recognized HIV pharmacology research programs offer training in drug development, antiretroviral therapeutics and medication management. It also provides training in patient education, adherence and counseling as well as an opportunity for applied clinical pharmacology research through multidisciplinary research teams.
