Comprehensive NeuroAIDS Center

COMPREHENSIVE NEUROAIDS CENTER (cnac)

 

Clinical and Behavioral Core


We support translational studies and cross-disciplinary investigation in epidemiology, behavioral health, clinical trials, and public health. The Core will expand its longitudinal database from the existing clinical cohorts to include neuropsychiatric and neurocognitive assessment of a large well-characterized urban minority patient population. The core assists in the development, design, and performance of studies that transition basic research to the bedside and at the same time foster the transition of clinical observations and hypotheses to the laboratory. This Core further interacts with the International HIV Medicine and Research Core to provide training in advanced HIV care and neurocognitive assessment that can be used at the international site to both improve the quality of patient care and also to perform meaningful neurocognitive assessment that benefits patients as well as the research community.
