NCI HIV and AIDS Research Coordinated by OHAM
In addition to research programs managed by OHAM, NCI conducts and supports research in HIV/AIDS and HIV malignancy throughout many of its Divisions, Offices, and Centers. As part of its role in overseeing research efforts in this field, some research activities are directly supported by OHAM.
The NCI has been at the forefront of HIV/AIDS research since the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, and NCI scientists have made a number of critical research contributions. The NCI currently supports a robust and varied research program in HIV/AIDS and HIV malignancy.
