Vanderbilt HIV Vaccine Program recruiting uninfected volunteers for new study

In the United States, HIV disproportionately infects certain groups and populations; however, HIV can infect anyone. Worldwide there are currently more than 40 million people infected with HIV. That number is growing. Developing a vaccine is the best hope to control HIV/AIDS.

The Vanderbilt HIV Vaccine Program needs healthy, uninfected adults (ages 18-50) 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.

For additional information, please contact Jarissa Greenard, community educator and recruiter with the Vanderbilt HIV Vaccine Program, at 615-343-8140 or jarissa.e.greenard@vumc.org.
