Behavioral Science Consultative Group

The Behavioral Science Consultative Group was formed in the summer of 2013. There are ten behavioral science researchers that are members of the BSCG. Each NIH HIV/AIDS clinical research network has a representative on the BSCG along with five experts that are not associated with the networks.

The overarching objectives of the BSCG are to provide expert opinion as requested to the NIH HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Networks on the behavioral components of their research agenda and studies: including, but not limited to, advice on protocol design, protocol implementation and methodology for data collection and evaluation. Examples of issues that can be addressed include the assessment of the interaction of adherence and risk behaviors in prevention studies, as well as the implications to study design of real-time adherence measures and possible interventions based on that data.​

Members of the Behavioral Science Consultative Group include:

Ira Wilson, Brown University (Co-chair)

Jane Simoni, University of Washington (Co-chair)

Ariane van der Straten, MTN and RTI

Carlos del Rio, ACTG and Emory University

Jessica Haberer, Harvard and Massachusetts General Hospital 

Mallory Johnson, University of California, San Francisco
