HIV Specimen Repository

The HIV Specimen Repository is a collection of frozen plasma, PBMC, serum and PaxGene specimens donated by HIV infected patients cared for at the University of Washington HIV clinics (the Madison and Roosevelt Virology Clinics).

HIV Research Study Participant Screening and Patient Referral

The Clinical and Retrovirology Research Core supports recruitment into clinical and pathogenesis research studies through triage and referral of eligible HIV-infected patients via a dedicated research nurse at the Harborview and University of Washington HIV Clinics.

Enhanced Data and Specimen Collection Service

The Clinical and Retrovirology Research Core provides a specimen collection and storage service for approved investigators who lack the funds or infrastructure needed to procure the clinical specimens necessary for their research.
