The Center for HIV Identification, Prevention, and Treatment Services (CHIPTS) is a collaboration of leading researchers from UCLA, Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science, Friends Research Institute, and the RAND Corporation. Its mission is to eliminate new HIV infections by promoting collaborative research, fostering networking, and supporting capacity building, with an emphasis on key populations who face comorbidities. Both domestically and globally, CHIPTS has expertise in HIV program administration, junior faculty and trainee development, policy impact and evaluation, and innovation in interventions to optimize care and treatment of HIV-infected individuals and to expand prevention opportunities for HIV-uninfected at-risk individuals.
The CHIPTS grant is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health under grant number P30MH058107. Dr. Steven Shoptaw is the Director/Principal Investigator. More information can be found at http://chipts.ucla.edu/.
