The STD Research Program conducts a variety of research projects at several partner clinical sites on campus.  Studies include enrollment into Federally- (NIH and CDC) funded research projects, industry-sponsored trials of STD diagnostics and therapeutics, and local, investigator-initiated studies whose topics include clinical, behavioral and descriptive epidemiology.  Major research sites include the Jefferson County Department of Health STD Clinic, the Personal Health Clinic which is directed by Dr. Jane Schwebke, the 1917 HIV Clinic, the UAB Vaccine research clinic, and the UAB Student Sexual Health Clinic (Dr. Nicholas Van Wagoner, Director).  In addition, occasional studies are directed in partnership with other clinical sites such as the UAB ED or other clinics.
