The IMPAACT Laboratory Center is located at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The LC is responsible for:
- Collecting, testing, and reporting results from biological samples.
- Assisting in the development and quality assurance assessment of local laboratory capacity at the Clinical Trials Units (CTUs) participating in IMPAACT studies.
- Identifying and implementing state-of-the-art assays and technologies to advance IMPAACT scientific agenda.
- The main purpose of the IMPAACT Laboratory Center is to support the network’s scientific agenda by providing state of the art laboratory testing in support of clinical trials, new works concept sheets (NWCS), and data analysis concept sheets (DACS); designing and evaluating new assays to elucidate pathogenesis; and providing scientific support to the network.
