Vaccine Research Center (VRC) Clinical Trials Core Laboratory

Mission Statement

The Clinical Trials Core will perform Phase I trials of candidate HIV vaccines developed by the VRC. This will involve community education on HIV prevention, recruitment of healthy adults into clinical trials, study design and analysis, and maintenance of regulatory standards. The Clinical Studies Core will also conduct studies of the natural history of HIV infection and evaluate basic aspects of pathogenesis, antigen presentation, and immune response. In addition, other vaccine candidates developed by VRC investigators for agents other than HIV will be evaluated in clinical trials.
