Resources for Researchers
The ACTG NL consists of Core Laboratory groups in immunology, pharmacology, virology and TB.
The specimen repositories are a collaboration between the ACTG and IMPAACT clinical trial networks to make the large body of specimens collected for HIV research available to investigators.
The Consortium for TB Biomarkers (CTB2) has created a collaborative biobank in order to accelerate the development of new drugs and treatments for tuberculosis by validating and exploring biomarkers of response to TB drug treatments. The biobank will ultimately house biospecimens from 1000 adult
Repository of specimens collected as part of the DAIDS VAX004 Clinical Trial.
The Human Tissue and Organ Research Resource (HTORR) program provides normal and diseased human tissues to investigators at research centers. HTORR supports the procurement, preservation, and distribution of human tissue and organs for basic and clinical research. While the resource maintains a
The MACS collects and stores a variety of biological specimens. Inventory may be housed at the national level or a subset at the local level. The MACS Center for the Coordination and Analysis of MACS (CAMACS) coordinates and facilitates completion of specimen 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 Women's Interagency HIV Study (WIHS) collects and stores a variety of biological specimens. Inventory may be housed at the national level, or a subset at the local level. The WIHS Data Management and Analysis Center (WDMAC) coordinates and facilitates completion of specimen requests.
