HIV day photoOpportunities for better medical treatment don't just happen. These opportunities are created by careful clinical research into investigational pharmaceutical therapies. At the HIV Clinical Research Unit, we create these opportunities for our patients every day. By combining our efforts with state of the art clinical facilities for HIV care at the Specialty Care Center (which includes a dental care program) our patients receive the highest quality care possible.

We offer an exceptional study and trial environment with highly qualified staff and an excellent performance record.

For both patients and physicians, this provides access to innovative experimental therapies before they are widely available. We are committed to delivering the best medical treatment: it is our mission to serve and heal.
