Resources for Researchers
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 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.
HVTN provides structured mentorship and project funding to investigators working on HIV vaccines.
The HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) offers two scholarship programs for early-career investigators funded through a supplement from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
The International Maternal Pediatric Adolescent AIDS Clinical Trials (IMPAACT) Early Career Investigator Mentored Research program aims to support the development of early career investigators to enter the field of maternal/child HIV research and advance the mission of the IMPAACT Network.
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 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 portal brings together some exciting features including: links to BCBB’s training resources; a section of scripts, code, and programs created by NIAID researchers downloadable from GitHub; and a curated calendar of events with entries focused on bioinformatics and computational biology.
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
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
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.
