In January 2017, student researchers from Minnesota and Uganda were formed into teams as part of Uganda Research Training Collaborative (URTC). Together, they proposed small-scale research projects and have since been advancing their research plans. The URTC provides a rich opportunity for students from the U of M and partner institutions in Uganda to develop research skills.

For their study, "Effect of adherence and malnutrition on pharmacokinetics and virologic outcomes of atazanavir in HIV-infected adolescents," Team 4 will meet with HIV-positive teenagers and ask interview questions about medication use and nutrition status. The team will also measure drug levels to assess relationships between adherence, nutrition, and drug levels in adolescents.
