The National Institute on Drug Abuse awarded a $4 million grant to an LSU Health Sciences researcher for a five-year study on how the principal psychoactive component of marijuana can affect HIV patients.

Dr. Patricia Molina will lead a team examining how the substance produces subtle changes in gene activity that can affect how a patient responds to HIV.

Molina says the research could lead to new HIV treatment therapies.
