The mission of the Hope Clinic is to conduct human research studies and clinical trials for infectious diseases of public health importance; e.g., HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, seasonal and pandemic influenza, diarrhea (Clostridium difficile, rotavirus, norovirus), Staphylococcus aureus, bioterror agents (anthrax, smallpox, tularemia), HPV, and others. The clinical studies encompass vaccines, treatments, prevention, community-based research, and laboratory-based translational human immunology.
The Hope Clinic is part of the division of infectious disease at Emory School of Medicine located in Decatur, GA. Funded by an NIH T32 grant, the Emory Vaccinology Training program helps to create the next generation of clinical and translational vaccine researchers. We work on prevalent infections, such as yellow fever, HIV, and influenza, as well as emerging or historically less common, such as ebola and zika. Research Sponsorship comes from the federal government (NIH,CDC), the biomedical industry , the Georgia Research Alliance (GRA), institutional resources, and philanthropic contributions, including Action Cycling Atlanta - sponsor of the AIDS Vaccine 200 annual bike ride. The Emory-CDC HIV/AIDS Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) and the Vaccine and Treatment Evaluation Unit (VTEU) are two major NIH grants awarded to the Hope Clinic.
