UCLA Leading $20M Project to Decrease Growing HIV Infection Rate Among Youths

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Thu, Aug 10, 2017

“Despite dramatic improvements in the ability to treat and prevent HIV, the HIV rate among youth in America has doubled in the last 10 years,” Mary Jane Rotheram-Borus, director of the Global Center for Children and Families at UCLA stated in a recent article for the UCLA Newsroom. By 2020 the incidence of the disease among youths is expected to increase by 39%. Dr. Rotheram-Boras believes that if acutely infected youths were identified and treated during the period when their infectivity to others is 5-10 fold, then the medical community could reverse this trend and improve the long-term health of youths.

UWisc: $9.8M in DARPA Research Funding to Develop Device to Accelerate Learning

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, May 17, 2017

We live in the information age. Many jobs now require the ability to learn large amounts of information and apply that to novel tasks. In the military this ability is critical. However, mastering a new task, skill or information often takes the right environment, mindset, and sharp focus. It also can require a lot of repetition and time. In some situations, that’s a luxury the military can’t afford. Therefore, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recently approved $9.85 million in new research funding to develop a system that will help military personnel quickly master new skills and digest vast quantities of information.
