Collaborate with Us
PHACS is a cross-disciplinary and collaborative network where leadership and participating entities collaborate both within the network and also with scientists and other experts involved in other networks and/or entities. PHACS has an extensive history of collaboration with other domestic and international HIV/AIDS research networks including the Collaborative Initiative for Paediatric HIV Education and Research (CIPHER), the International Maternal Pediatric Adolescent AIDS Clinical Trials (IMPAACT) network and the Division of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (DAIDS) Office of HIV/AIDS Network Collaboration (HANC). These collaborative efforts support the overall mission and goals of PHACS and have enhanced the success of the network.
PHACS protocols are structured to accommodate focused substudies, and we welcome collaboration with researchers from a range of fields, institutions and networks.
Typically, PHACS substudies are proposed by any of the following:
- PHACS clinical investigators, site coordinators or staff
- Independent investigators conducting HIV-related research funded by NIH Institutes and Centers and other funding sources
- HIV/AIDS clinical research networks supported by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and other funding sources
The Process for Collaboration with PHACS Policy provides external investigators with an outline of the resources and process for establishing collaborations between other networks or external collaborators and the PHACS network. PHACS welcomes opportunities for collaboration and encourages those interested in collaborating to utilize the resources below to support this process. Please note: Per conditions of the PHACS 2020 grant, PHACS is not currently allowed to fund international components. For further information, please contact PHACS@hsph.harvard.edu.
