The Clinical Laboratory and Biomarkers Cores will coordinate access to laboratory expertise, testing, training, specimen repositories and Good Clinical Laboratory Practices (GCLP). The goals of this core are to assure that all JHU HIV investigators have access to and utilize appropriate, validated and where applicable, certified laboratory assays. The core will also maintain a biomarker specimen repository for storage cataloguing and utilization of biological specimens.

Remember to acknowledge the CFAR in your publications, abstracts, grant proposals, and presentations.
Continued funding from NIH for the JHU CFAR depends on evidence that we are providing added value to HIV research being done at Johns Hopkins.
If you receive any kind of support from the CFAR, please include an acknowledgement in your publications, presentations, etc. by using the citation examples available here.
If any of the support was for Laboratory or Biomarkers-specific topics and you have published, presented or submitted a proposal, please send a link to Curt Reynolds (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that we can track and publicize HIV research at JHU.
This workshop will provide an overview of the program, describe successful applications and outline currently available CFAR resources to strengthen your application.View Video
