Vanderbilt HIV Vaccine Program seeks healthy, HIV-negative men for vaccine study

Recently the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced new statistical findings which reveal that men who have sex with men are 44 percent more likely to become infected with HIV than their heterosexual counterparts.

Developing a vaccine is the best hope to control HIV/AIDS.

The Vanderbilt HIV Vaccine Program needs healthy, uninfected gay or bisexual men (ages 18-45) from all walks of life to help find a vaccine to prevent HIV infection.

There is no risk of HIV infection from the vaccines.

Volunteers must be available locally for 12-18 months. Volunteers will be compensated.
