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.
Repository of specimens collected as part of the DAIDS VAX004 Clinical Trial.
The HIV Database & Analysis Unit provides an integrated repository of HIV sequence and immunology published data, by curating & maintaining a relational database with searchable web access for the scientific community; and (ii) develop web-based computation analysis methods and tools for
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 provides follow-up studies of products which already have been evaluated in a biochemical or cell-based assay and shown to possess an activity profile that warrants further development of the product as an HIV therapeutic.
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 Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS) is an ongoing prospective study of the natural and treated histories of HIV-1 infection in homosexual and bisexual men conducted by sites located in Baltimore, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles.
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.
In addition to its role in clinical epidemiology, the Women's Interagency HIV Study (WIHS) conducts high quality pathogenesis research, and is a unique resource for research because of the depth of data and specimens available from each study visit.
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.
