This project will serve as the Statistical and Data Management Center (SDMC) of the AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG). The specific aims are to support the research agenda of the ACTG by providing a group of highly experienced statisticians, data managers and other professionals who are knowledgeable in all aspects of HIV therapeutic research and an organizational structure that promotes this work with the ACTG; to provide expertise and high quality clinical and laboratory data management and communications systems to support the development, conduct and analysis of ACTG studies; and to advance the mission of the ACTG through innovation in study design and analysis, providing leadership in cross-study analyses and collaborating effectively with other HIV Trials Networks and HIV research organizations. The expertise provided by the SDMC will help advance HIV therapeutic research by ensuring ACTG clinical trials and other studies are efficiently designed and analyzed to the highest standard.
