Gastrointestinal, Nutrition, and Liver Research in HIV/AIDS

The Gastrointestinal, Nutrition, and Liver Research in HIV/AIDS program supports research that characterizes intestinal injury, mechanisms of maldigestion, intestinal mucosal functions, and hepatic and biliary dysfunction in patients with AIDS.  In addition, the program also supports studies on the mechanisms of nutrient malabsorption, deficiencies of various micronutrients, nutritional management of the wasting syndrome, and other aspects of malnutrition related to AIDS.
