News & Observer reported that officials from Richmond's Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) said a $4.4 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is allowing VCU to lead an effort with other research universities to supply developing countries with affordable access to AIDS drugs. The project -- known as the Medicine for All Initiative -- is made up of researchers from the University of Washington, Florida State University, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and will focus on improving costs for the drug nevirapine. According to officials, the collaboration will work to develop new synthetic and manufacturing methods for the drug, considered by the World Health Organization to be a first-line therapy for the treatment of AIDS.
