Are you interested in learning about HIV prevention research studies taking place at the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC? If so, you can join the HIV Prevention Research Registry. HIV prevention registry members may be contacted by registry staff members about studies for which they appear to qualify. Eligible participants are ages 18 and older.
HIV, or human immunodeficiency virus, is a disease that weakens a person’s immune system by destroying cells that fight disease and infection. Though there is no cure for HIV, the disease can be controlled with proper medical care. Preventive strategies can be used to lower your risk of acquiring or transmitting HIV. Much progress in HIV and other diseases has been made from research registries. The purpose of the HIV Prevention Research Registry is to help researchers identify and contact people who may be able to participate in future research studies.
