Our Research Program
At Whitman-Walker Health, we have been conducting clinical research studies and pharmaceutical trials since 1987 when the first medications to treat HIV were being tested. We are committed to finding the best treatment and prevention options to keep our patients healthy! Since the founding of our research program, we have conducted critical research studies on virtually every medication to treat HIV, participated in the development of newer treatments for Hepatitis B and C, and demonstrated the feasibility of transferring PrEP from a research setting to a clinical practice setting. We are honored to continue to participate in several of the oldest HIV-focused longitudinal health and behavior cohort studies.

Our research studies include clinical trials that test how well promising, not-yet-approved new medications work to treat HIV and hepatitis or prevent HIV infection and how safe these medications are for patients. We also conduct long-term cohort studies that look at topics like how commonly our patients develop medical problems like heart or brain disease, disease prevention and medical adherence. Currently, we have more than 2,500 participants in our 540+ active studies. Recently, we have started studies specifically for our transgender and younger patients.

We frequently need volunteers and collaborators like you to take part in our research studies! With your help, we will learn about which treatments are the most effective and shape the future of medicine at Whitman-Walker Health and beyond.

We have several studies that are currently enrolling. Are you interested in taking part in a study?

Please complete our short recruitment survey.

Our most important collaborators are patients like you! Either by joining the Community Advisory Board (CAB) or participating in a study, you make our success possible. We are so thankful for your help!

Working with other organizations to further our research is another important collaboration. We thank all our partners who have helped us grow our efforts!

All our Services are available in multiple languages upon request.

Our bilingual staff and volunteers will help get the language services you need!
