LIDS announces its Spring 2014 projects!
LIDS is excited to announce its Spring 2014 Semester projects! They projects address a wide range of topics in development, such as criminal justice, genomics and HIV/AIDS research, and transparency in urban fiscal policy.

3. Collaborative African Genomics Network (CAfGEN), Developing Genomic Approaches to HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa
