The Collaboratory of AIDS Researchers for Eradication (CARE) is a consortium of scientific experts in the field of HIV latency from several U.S. and European academic research institutions as well as Merck Research Laboratories working together to find a cure for HIV.


The CARE goal is to establish a new paradigm for HIV eradication research that will engage and inspire the scientific community to work together as a collaboration that shares expertise and resources to advance the development of drugs against HIV.

Structure & Governance

CARE includes 20 leading scientists in the field of HIV latency from nine U.S. academic research institutions as well as Merck Research Laboratories. CARE investigators (CIs) are divided into four research groups according to common research aims and expertise. Each group is focused on a distinct aspect of HIV latency. CARE receives support from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).


The consortium is financially supported by NIAID and NIMH.
