Baylor College of Medicine

Since the early 1990s, Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital Immunology, Allergy and Retrovirology Clinic has provided comprehensive primary and specialty medical care and social services to infants, children and adolescents at risk for or living with HIV. With a commitment to pushing science forward, the department has been a leader in contributing to adolescent focused research through continued participation in the Adolescent Trials Network (ATN), the International Maternal, Pediatric, Adolescent AIDS Clinical Trials (IMPAACT) Network, as well as conducting other Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) and CDC funded protocols. Nationally recognized for our enrollment and retention of “hard-to-reach” adolescents at risk for HIV, we will be returning for our third iteration of the ATN.
