The Adolescent Medicine Trials Network for HIV/AIDS Interventions (ATN) research program aims to defeat the rising HIV epidemic among adolescents and young adults in the United States. ATN is led by investigators with innovative thinking and novel approaches to increase awareness of HIV status in youth and, for those diagnosed with HIV, increase access to health care.
Researchers who are part of the ATN met in Washington, DC from April 8-11, 2019 for the biannual Full Meeting for the network. The meeting allows people around the country who conduct current ATN research studies to collaborate, learn, and build professional relationships.
Activist and artist Dasan Ahanu worked with the ATN to write and perform his spoken word piece on youth HIV stigma in this video.
Fifteen studies were recently added from Adolescent Medicine Trials for HIV/AIDS Interventions (ATN) to the NICHD Data and Specimen Hub (DASH) archive.
The ATN welcomes ideas from the scientific community in the form of proposals for new studies which are consistent with the Network's mission and are not currently being planned or pursued elsewhere. The ATN also welcomes proposals from investigators who would like to use existing data and/or specimens collected during ATN studies to answer questions related to the HIV epidemic among US adolescents and young adults.
