- The purpose of this initiative is to stimulate research that will utilize a proteomic approach to characterize the protein profiles and protein-protein interactions in the oral mucosa in conjunction with HIV/AIDS. The research is expected to provide significant insights into the cellular and molecular mechanisms associated with the pathogenesis of the oral disorders associated with AIDS and the impact of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). It is anticipated that this initiative will identify novel strategies for prevention and management of oral manifestations of AIDS.
