Resources for Researchers
The ACTG NL consists of Core Laboratory groups in immunology, pharmacology, virology and TB.
This service can be used to develop and perform a variety of analytical assays to assess the properties of drug substances and their formulations.
This service program supports the development and manufacture, of a wide variety of pharmaceutical dosage formulations, including tablets, capsules, semi-solid preparations, injectibles, and sustained-release products. If requested, manufacturing can be done under GMP.
This service provides chemical synthesis of lead compounds for use in additional drug development studies. Compounds must previously have been successfully synthesized to be candidates for this service. Synthesis of new analogs is not supported.
The Microbicide Trials Network (MTN) is a NIAID-funded worldwide collaborative clinical trials network focused on preventing the sexual transmission of HIV. The MTN accepts concepts for new protocols, ancillary study proposals, secondary data analysis requests, and dataset requests.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) AIDS Reagent Program provides critical research reagents and resources to the scientific community. The ARP acquires, develops, and produces state-of-the-art reagents and provides these reagents at no cost to qualified investigators throughout the world.
The Phase I Clinical Trial Units for Therapeutics support the design, development, implementation, and conduct of Phase I clinical trials to assess safety, pharmacokinetics, and/or pharmacodynamics of licensed and investigational therapeutic products, including immunomodulatory agents and monoclo
Current methods for monitoring HIV-infected patients on antiretroviral therapy are expensive and technologically complex, making it difficult for use in resource-limited countries around the world.
The Vaccine and Treatment Evaluation Units (VTEUs), supported by the Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (DMID) since the 1960s, comprise a consortium of contracts with academic centers and organizations that provides a ready resource for the conduct of clinical trials to evaluate pr
