Congratulations to Dr. Don Des Jarlais, CDUHR Deputy Core Director, for being a 2015 NIDA Avant-Garde Award recipient! The project "Combined Prevention to Reduce Initiation into Injecting Drug Use" will use a multi-component HIV prevention intervention study in New York City and Tallinn, Estonia to reduce the number of drug users who transition to injection drugs. NIDA Avant-Garde awards are intended to stimulate high-impact research that may lead to groundbreaking opportunities for the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS in drug users.
