The UNC/Emory Center for Innovative Technology (iTech) aims to lower the burden of HIV infection by developing and evaluating innovative, interdisciplinary research on technology-based interventions across the HIV prevention and care continuum for at-risk youth and youth living with HIV aged 15-24 years in the United States.
Effective 3/17, all recruitment & enrollment into iTech studies, with the exception of We Prevent & ePrEP (online-only) has paused. Follow-up visits may still be conducted, but each site’s principal investigator should determine the best interests of its staff and participants.
We will be assessing viability for transitioning, where possible, studies from in-person to virtual visits. This is truly an unprecedented situation and we appreciate your patience and flexibility as we make decisions for the health, well-being and safety of all iTech staff & participants.
