The Rochester Victory Alliance is one of several research sites around the world that together comprise the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN). Our organization conducts all phases of clinical trials, from evaluating experimental vaccines for safety and the ability to stimulate immune responses to testing vaccine efficacy.
The HVTN recognizes the importance of public support in finding a vaccine against AIDS. Our staff and volunteers around the globe work actively to help community members understand the general science of HIV/AIDS vaccines, as well as research methods and clinical trial processes. Through our efforts, we hope to dispel some of the misconceptions that surround HIV/AIDS and human subject studies.
Support for the HVTN comes from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
