PhD fellowship on HIV molecular epidemiology
A PhD fellowship on HIV molecular epidemiology has been funded by the EuResist Network at the PhD programme in Data Science of Sapienza University of Rome. The PhD in Data Science of Sapienza is a multidisciplinary doctoral program coordinated by the Department of Computer, Control and Management Engineering "Antonio Ruberti".

The CARE project starts publishing its first results
In only ten months of activity the CARE partners created a solid ethics permissions, data and samples sharing infrastructure for a wide network of collaboration against HIV, TB and HCV. Already three papers have been published on HIV-1 resistance and epidemiology and the poster "HIV-1 A6 Subtype: its challenging identification and Southern Russian molecular epidemiology" (S. Sierra et al.) will be presented at EACS 2019!
The CARE project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 825673.
Data from over 103, 000 HIV patients in EIDB

Two posters from the EuResist Mentor School to be presented at EACS 2019
The two studies: “A retrospective analysis of the EuResist data set assessing dual therapy success in a real-life context” and “A retrospective analysis of the EuResist data set assessing if NRTI resistance impairs INSTI based treatment with NRTI backbone” have been realized by the participants of the EMS 2018 under guidance of the trainer M. Bohm and of EuResist Network mentors.
The project has been supported by Janssen Parmaceutical and Gilead Sciences.
