The Office of HIV/AIDS Network Coordination (HANC) works with the HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Networks funded by the Division of AIDS (DAIDS) of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) with the intent of creating a more integrated, collaborative and flexible research structure. The networks are an affiliated group of national and international medical research institutions and investigators that conduct clinical HIV/AIDS research to develop safe and effective drugs, prevention strategies, and HIV vaccines. HANC is based at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA and has provided leadership and logistical support for cross-network coordination efforts since 2004.
HANC’s mission is to support the science and operations of the HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Networks by increasing efficiency and resource-sharing through the coordination of critical activities across networks and with other research and advocacy partners. Resources, trainings, and learning opportunities offered by HANC are highlighted in the attached flyer and available on the HANC website (www.hanc.info).
