The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) has received a five-year, $31.7 million grant for its Adolescent Medicine Trials Network for HIV/AIDS Intervention (ATN), according to a UAB statement. The grant from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development is supplemented by the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Institute of Mental Health. The renewal funding will be directed to expanding ATN's community-based backbone. This is the third five-year period for ATN, which was formed in 2001 to prevent HIV in youth.
