The HVTN shares data and specimens collected in its studies with investigators who would like to use our materials to answer research questions related to vaccinology, immunology, or HIV/AIDS. These studies are called ancillary/exploratory studies, and the Network invites any researchers to do these studies because it is our belief that collaborative science benefits everyone, including the community.
Main Areas of Focus
- To make the most of data and samples collected during clinical trials
- To benefit researchers who may not have the resources to collect the required data and specimens on their own
- Investigators working on research to answer questions related to vaccinology, immunology, or HIV/AIDS are invited to submit a proposal to use data and/or specimens collected in HVTN clinical trials.
