Seattle Vaccine Trials Unit

HIV is everywhere, and it’s not going away. Yet.

The Seattle Vaccine Trials Unit enrolls local volunteers for global health related studies such as HIV, malaria and rhinovirus. These studies are conducted by researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington.  

There’s no doubt that the world is desperately in need of an HIV vaccine.  Our researchers are leading the fight against HIV/AIDS through the pursuit of new and innovative prevention strategies.
