Restructuring the NIAID Clinical Trials NetworksNIAID is looking to expand upon the success of its six current HIV/AIDS clinical trials networks to create an infrastructure capable of performing both HIV/AIDS research and research involving non-HIV/AIDS infectious diseases. The awards currently supporting the six HIV/AIDS networks are set to expire in 2013 and 2014.
