Help Accelerate HIV Research

Why Your Participation Matters

Did you know your white blood cells can make a big difference? By donating these cells through a process called apheresis, you can help researchers find new life-saving therapeutics and develop medical breakthroughs for HIV.

Blood will be collected from one arm, and a small amount of white blood cells will be separated off through a machine. Your blood is returned normally to your other arm.

You will be screened to confirm study eligibility prior to being scheduled for any donations. Our trained medical team is by your side every step of the way.



Submit a health profile by answering basic questions about your medical history.



Speak with a research coordinator to learn more about what is required to participate.



Schedule an appointment at the closest donation location to you. Upon request, transportation can be provided.
