HPTN Studies

HPTN research studies are developed by protocol teams that include CTU investigators and recognized experts in HIV prevention. As study protocols are developed, they undergo a rigorous intra- and extra-network review process that ensures compliance with current ethical guidelines and regulatory procedures.

To view detailed information about studies, including performance sites and enrollment figures, select a protocol number from the tables below.  Each Study Protocol is available once version 1.0 is approved and distributed to the performance sites.  The CORE Protocol Contact can provide additional information and materials.

Scholars Program

The HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) is proud to offer two scholarship programs for early-career investigators funded through a supplement from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). The HPTN Scholars Program now includes two components: a domestic (U.S.) program and an international program. Both programs seek to increase opportunities for scientists from groups under-represented in HIV prevention research.

In the domestic program, successful applicants will be Investigators who have received their terminal degree (MD, Phd, etc). For the international version, current MD, PhD, and MBChB students may apply, along with individuals having already graduated with their terminal degree. In both programs, applicants should desire to work with a mentor scientist in the Network to complete a research project based upon an existing HPTN research study.
