The University of Rochester Medical Center was one of the first research sites in the U.S. to conduct HIV vaccine studies. Our long-term experience has allowed us to offer guidance to many other international HIV studies.
The Rochester Victory Alliance is a committed group of experienced, local pioneers passionate about developing an HIV vaccine.
We work closely with the Rochester community to inform and educate. We participate in many events throughout the year to meet folks interested in our work. Check out our events calendar to see what we’re up to.
