Research studies conducted at the NJMS CRC range from HIV prevention and treatment to management of HIV related comorbidities and complications in men, women and the LGBTQ community.

In addition to HIV studies, our site also participates in Hepatitis C and influenza trials. Studies are either industry funded or investigator initiated and are sponsored by one or more of the following organizations: the National Institutes of Health (NIH), DAIDS, AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG), HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) and International Network for Strategic Initiatives in Global HIV Trials (INSIGHT).

Clinical research is an essential tool used to help improve treatment and quality care of patients. At NJMS CRC we strive to provide our community with the highest quality research and encourage participation in our cutting edge research program.

Clinical Research Networks:


The AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG) was initially established in 1987 to broaden the scope of the AIDS research effort of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). The ACTG established and supports the largest Network of expert clinical and translational investigators and therapeutic clinical trials units in the world, including sites in resource-limited countries. These investigators and units serve as the major resource for HIV/AIDS research, treatment, care, and training/education in their communities.
