HIV/AIDS and Emerging Infectious Diseases Institute (HEIDI) 


The HIV/AIDS and Emerging Infectious Diseases Institute (HEIDI) is dedicated to identifying and supporting highly innovative HIV/AIDS prevention and cure research with the goal of understanding, preventing, and treating HIV for a zero-transmissions future. Miami is the epicenter of the United States’ HIV/AIDS epidemic accounting for one third of new HIV diagnoses in the State of Florida (FLDOH). The Institute acknowledges support from the State of Florida Funding Initiative in line with state and national Ending the Epidemic efforts.
