Research Matters

Since 1987, UW Positive Research (formally the UW Aids Clinical Trails) has been conducting rigorous human-centered research focused on HIV treatment, HIV remission/cure, comorbidities associated with HIV, and other infectious diseases like COVID-19 and MPOX. We’re consistently part of breakthrough research that leads to better care for everyone.

Today's volunteers help us find tomorrow's answers

​HIV treatment is better than ever today because of volunteers chose to participate in clinical trials. You can make an impact by joining research.
