CNICS uses a collaborative cohort study design to gather unique data on the clinical, virologic, immunologic, behavioral, metabolic, service utilization, and psychosocial aspects of HIV infection and disease. CNICS intends that key findings from this collaborative cohort study be presented and published widely, promptly, and be of the highest quality. Established policies and procedures have been developed to ensure that these important multi-center research findings be developed collaboratively, efficiently and equitably. The policy ensures an efficient, fair and coordinated collaboration with other outside investigators or other cohort studies on all research questions deemed appropriate for joint analysis.  Review the details for site participation in collaborative studies within CNICS at Submit a Proposal. Upon approval of a study in CNICS, sites are polled for participation and designation of a site contact. Site contacts are selected based on scientific expertise and interest. Site contacts serve as representatives on study writing teams.
