Did you know that the Triangle region is a center of excellence in global health?
Anchored by such global health institutes like RTI International, the North Carolina Biotechnology Center, Duke University, North Carolina State University, the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, and the Triangle Global Health Consortium, the region is at the forefront of addressing issues challenging the world’s health. In addition, RTP is the home of several breakthrough technologies, including the discovery of AZT (a key treatment in the fight against HIV/AIDS), Taxol and the Cochlear ear implant.
In recognition of the significant achievements and advancements that have been made in the area of HIV/AIDS by RTP firms over the past 50 years, the Research Triangle Foundation of North Carolina, RTI International, Quarry Integrated Communications, Science in the Triangle, and others will be partnering to develop a special program next month at the RTP Headquarters. Leading up to the event, please look forward to blog postings both here and at Science is Local, covering in-depth interviews with those living with HIV/AIDS and exploring how regional institutes are leading advancements in the global health field.
This is a great opportunity to learn more about the region’s expertise in this area and find out how Park companies and stakeholders are making an impact on the HIV/AIDS and other concerns of global health.
