Hey, here's a cool idea! Let's all cut our own heads off!
Scientists announced today at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infectious Diseases (CROI) that they had cured a newborn of HIV infection, a feat never before accomplished.
Simultaneously today, an old ACT-UP warhorse, Gregg Gonsalves, tweeted that the sequester would cut the NIH budget by $1.6 billion, PePFAR by $280 million, the CDC by $289 million, the FDA by $209 million, and HRSA (which includes Ryan White monies that provide treatment) by $365 million.
