Our Research Commitment

The DC CTU's research efforts are informed by deep community conversations and collaborations across institutions. Through partnerships between institutions and community members, we strive to contribute to ending the HIV epidemic in the nation's capital. The DC CTU is one of 35 CTUs funded in 2020. This global structure streamlines resources to advance four areas of HIV research science: prevention, vaccine development, new adult therapeutics, and therapeutics for mothers and children. Each of these four aims ultimately intend to reduce the incidence of HIV, develop next-generation therapies, develop a cure, and address HIV-associated comorbidities.
