Participate in Research

All progress made in the understanding and treatment of disease has been based on the willingness of research participants who have volunteered to make a difference.   

The HIV Neurobehavioral Research Program (HNRP) conducts research devoted to advancing our knowledge of HIV and related diseases as they affect the brain and nervous system.  Since 1988, approximately 2,700 people have participated in research at the HNRP.  The HNRP is continuously seeking individuals from the community to participate.  Current study investigations examine the effects of HIV,  Hepatitis C infection (HCV), and past Methamphetamine dependence and how these affect the brain, memory and aging and other aspects of human behavior.      

Some studies ask for multiple visits in the span of a few months while others ask for only one or two visits per year and last a few years or more.  All studies provide monetary compensation for each completed visit. 

You may be eligible to participate if you:

If you meet the basic requirements, call (619) 543-5000 and ask to speak with a research recruiter.  A brief phone interview with a recruiter will determine the study for which you may be eligible*.

All information obtained during the study is kept strictly confidential.
