International Clinical Research Center


The International Clinical Research Center (ICRC) will expand UW capacity to conduct and integrate pivotal international biomedical prevention and laboratory research investigations through well-designed clinical trials and efficient research trials operations.

The mission of the ICRC is to execute clinical research, expand international clinical trial capacity and advance research for infectious disease interventions of public health importance.

The ICRC aims to conduct observational cohort studies and clinical trials related to HIV and other infectious diseases; develop efficient clinical, data, and laboratory operations in support of the clinical research projects; build repositories of invaluable biologic specimens for scientific investigations for pathogenesis and prevention research related to HIV and other infectious diseases, and facilitate collaborations to optimally utilize the laboratory samples. These aims are achieved through the following areas of emphasis:

Clinical Epidemiology Program
Design and implement clinical trials for HIV and infectious disease prevention interventions, as well as conduct observational epidemiologic studies and analyses.

Translational Research Program
Develop the biologic repository in support of a laboratory research program of host immunological, genomic and pathogenic factors related to HIV and infectious disease, integrated with an extensive epidemiologic and clinical database.

Training Program
Facilitate training of UW and international investigators in research design, implementation, and analysis.

Core Services Offered

Clinical trial and study design, international research operations, and biological specimen repository.
