The Seattle HIV Vaccine Trials Unit (HVTU) is one of 17 domestic and international clinical vaccine units in the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN). The local unit is jointly run by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and University of Washington. Today, more than 900 people (approximately 65 percent men and 35 percent women) have participated in HIV vaccine studies at the unit. The Seattle HVTU has successfully recruited more volunteers than any other unit in the HVTN.

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center took the helm of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases-sponsored worldwide HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN) last year, creating a global framework in which to conduct clinical HIV vaccine research. At that time the domestic site had been identified. Since then the HVTN has been expanded to more than 13 countries, in addition to the 10 U.S. sites.

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center plays three prominent roles in the HVTN: Dr. Larry Corey heads the Core Operations Center, the network's Statistical and Data Management Center is led by Dr. Steve Self, both located at the Hutchinson Center. Drs. Julie McElrath and Connie Celum lead the Seattle HIV Vaccine Trials Unit in Seattle.
