Adolescent Trials Network

-
Investigator: Cherrie B. Boyer, PhD
Sponsor: University of Alabama System

Location(s): United States

Description

The primary mission of the ATN is to conduct research, both independently and in collaboration with existing research networks and individual investigators, in HIV-infected and HIV-at-risk pre-adolescents, adolescents, and young adults up to age 25 years. Prevention research, not the development of antiretroviral therapy trials, remains a large focus of research for pre-adolescents. Much of the research activity of the ATN focuses on collaboration with the Clinical Trials Networks supported by other institutes of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), including but not limited to the Division of AIDS, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) through coordination of research.
