For researchers, new investigators and scholars looking for data and biological specimens to conduct research, the Division of AIDS (DAIDS) of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) offers the HIV Specimen Repository Programs aimed at providing the scientific community with research resources for multidisciplinary investigation.
The specimen repositories are a collaboration between several clinical trial networks to make the larger body of specimens collected for HIV research available to investigators.
The Statistical Center for HIV & AIDS Research and Prevention (SCHARP) at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Fred Hutch) created the Atlas Science Portal to serve as a data integration and operational hub for multiple HIV research networks. Atlas helps these networks gain a wider view of their projects by bringing together disparate sources and types of information, opening the door to novel scientific insights and smoother operations.
The NICHD Data and Specimen Hub (DASH) is a centralized resource that allows researchers to share and access de-identified data from studies funded by NICHD. DASH also serves as a portal for requesting biospecimens from selected DASH studies.
The Collaborating Consortium of Cohorts Producing NIDA Opportunities (C3PNO) is the coordinating center for the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) U01 cohorts. C3PNO manages and stimulates the use of the NIDA longitudinal cohorts and addresses high priority research on HIV/AIDS in the context of substance misuse.
NIAID's page ClinRegs, is an online database of country-specific clinical research regulatory information designed to assist in planning and implementing international clinical research. Countries are included based on NIAID's international clinical research priorities.
