HIV Clinical Research

Home to an Global HIV Prevention and Treatment Clinical Trials Unit and Center for AIDS Research, UNC is a leader in research on treatments for HIV and HIV-associated conditions. Our clinical research faculty focuses primarily on human subjects research designed to improve the clinical management of HIV in the U.S. and around the world.

HIV/STI Epidemiology and Prevention

Long before HIV first appeared, investigators at UNC were interested in the epidemiology, treatment, and prevention of sexually transmitted infections. By improving our understanding of how HIV and other STIs spread, our faculty are continuing UNC’s long-standing commitment to the development of innovative and improved strategies for the prevention of these infections.

Infections in Compromised Hosts

With advances in care for solid organ and stem cell transplant recipients and patients with burns over the past several decades have come important, new challenges in infectious diseases. UNC is addressing these challenges with a dedicated team of physician-scientists who are improving care for these patients and studying innovative approaches to the treatment and prevention of transplant and burn associated infections.
