Under the leadership of Susan Eshleman of Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine, Department of Pathology, the HPTN (HIV Prevention Trials Network) Network Laboratory (NL) is responsible for collecting, testing and reporting results from biological samples; assisting in the development and quality assurance assessment of local laboratory capacity at the Clinical Trials Units (CTUs) participating in HPTN clinical trials; and identifying and implementing state-of-the-art assays and technologies to advance the scientific agenda of the Network.

The HPTN Network laboratory has developed a brief presentation as our way of introducing the HPTN NL to new sites and as an update to those sites we have worked with previously.
