Research Opportunities

The HIV Neurobehavioral Research Program is dedicated to multi-disciplinary research and strongly encourages collaborative studies with external investigators. Training opportunities are also available.

The HNRP serves as the umbrella organization that provides broad scientific and programmatic leadership for multi-disciplinary research programs related to the neurocognitive and psychiatric impact of HIV/AIDS. In many instances these programs gather comparable neuromedical, neurocognitive, and laboratory data.

Although the HNRP does not at present have available a publicly searchable database, we do have an extensive database on both human subjects and animals that include, for humans: background history, neuromedical examinations, neurocognitive testing, laboratory measures, and in some instances more advanced neuroimaging and behavioral data.

We welcome external investigators who may wish to take advantage of this dataset, and anyone interested should contact  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Ideally, we would encourage establishment with external scientists a collaborative model such that we might pursue interesting feasibility studies together with the idea of generating pilot information that would inform a more mature application to NIH.

Research Collaborations

HNRP investigations encompass research in neurology, neuropsychology, psychiatry, imaging, neuropathology, neurobiology, infectious disease, virology, immunology, and other disciplines. Collaborations with both external junior and senior investigators are welcomed. If you would like to know more regarding the possibility of collaborating with HNRP investigators, please contact Dr. Tom Marcotte at (619) 543-5044 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
