ACTG Network

The AVRC is a clinical research site in the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) Network, an international network of HIV/AIDS research sites. The AVRC consistently ranks as the highest-enrolling ACTG site in the U.S. and invites members of the community to participate in one of our clinical trials.


The mission of the ACTG Network is to develop and conduct scientifically rigorous translational research and clinical trials by:
  • Investigating the viral and immune pathogenesis of HIV-1 infection and its complications.
  • Evaluating novel drugs and strategies for treating HIV-1 infection.
  • Evaluating interventions and strategies to treat and prevent HIV-related co-infections and co-morbidity.
  • Publishing and disseminating results to improve care, and reduce or eliminate morbidity and mortality associated with HIV-1 infection and its complications.
Community members interested in participating in an ACTG study should contact the Screening Coordinator at (619) 543-8080.
