Welcome to the California NeuroAIDS Tissue Network
The California NeuroAIDS Tissue Network (CNTN) is a research resource based at the University of California, San Diego, sponsored by the U.S. National Institute of Mental Health, National Institutes of Health (NIMH/NIH Award Number U01MH083506). CNTN acquires and makes available well-characterized tissues from individuals who have Central Nervous System involvement with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).
CNTN is an organization of research scientists and clinicians dedicated to the study of neurological and psychological impairment in HIV infection. CNTN includes researchers from the Harbor-UCLA Research and Education Institute, Torrance, the University of California, San Diego, and the University of California, Irvine. Funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, CNTN is one of four sites participating in the larger National NeuroAIDS Tissue Consortium. Together, these researchers use their shared knowledge and resources to develop uniform methods for studying HIV‑affected populations with neurological disorders.
