Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center (ADARC)

The Rockefeller University has a close affiliation with the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center (ADARC), and two of its researchers, David D. Ho and Paul Bieniasz, head Rockefeller laboratories. While ADARC is an independent organization with its own governing board, its scientists conduct clinical research at The Rockefeller University Hospital and pursue collaborative studies with Rockefeller faculty members, among other activities. Dr. Ho, ADARC’s scientific director, is a former Time magazine Man of the Year who championed the now-standard HIV “cocktail therapy” at The Rockefeller University Hospital. ADARC has played an important role in breakthroughs that have helped redefine our understanding of HIV and changed the course of clinical care for AIDS patients. Ongoing studies at ADARC include a wide range of basic investigations on HIV.
