News Item: HIV Cure Center, Cell Microsystems to further develop single-cell diagnostic assay

Cell Microsystems and UNC’s HIV Cure Center will continue their work on developing an automated assay that can measure single cells for latent HIV, thanks to a two-year, $1.65 million contract from the National Institutes of Health. The new contract, a highly competitive phase II Small Business Innovation Research award, affirms the partners’ success resulting from a phase I SBIR award in September 2018.

Congratulations to Cell Microsystems’ Director of Product Applications, Jessica Hartman, PhD, who is leading as the principal investigator for this project!
