Current Studies

The world needs an HIV vaccine, and the HVTU is on a mission to find it. You can help by volunteering for one our open studies. Currently we have a variety (vaccine and non-vaccine) of studies that support HIV vaccine research.

About Our Studies
Our HIV Vaccine studies are for HIV negative volunteers who are 18-50 years old. They usually are 1-2 years long and may require a number of visits through out the study. The study products (vaccines and placebos) being used do not contain the HIV virus. Therefore, the study products cannot cause HIV infection. For more details, give us a call at 206.667.2300.

Our Cohort Studies (also known as our non-vaccine studies), are for HIV negative and positive volunteers. Some of our Cohort Studies take volunteers who are 18-60 years old. In these studies, there are no medications or vaccines given and they usually are 2 or more years long. To learn more about these studies, visit the Cohort Studies page on this site.

Studies conducted by the HVTU are funded by the National Institutes of Health. Locally, our studies are supported by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington.
