Research Studies Overview

The Research + Education Group (R+E) is currently conducting a number of HIV studies, and we have several about to open. We offer free HIV consultation, information about our latest clinical trials, and can also provide referral information and resources. Please call us Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to find out about our latest studies. We are happy to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced nurses involved in HIV research to discuss possible consideration for any ongoing or upcoming studies.

What is an HIV or AIDS Clinical Trial?

  • A Clinical Trial tests how well a given treatment, drug, or drug regimen works on those who have HIV or AIDS;
  • A Clinical Trial is a carefully planned and managed medical experiment;
  • Before a Clinical Trial is conducted on people, scientists must first have good results for the drug or treatment in laboratory tests and animal studies;
