A nine million dollar grant could help University of Rochester researchers find better ways to treat cancer and HIV.

The money from the National Institutes of Health will focus on immune system research. During the five year study, a team will examine images of immune system cells and see how they respond to inflammation and infection in mice.

Researchers say the study could lead to better treatment for everything from allergies to arthritis.
