The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Panel on Antiretroviral Guidelines for Adults and Adolescents (or the Panel) is accepting nominations for new scientific/clinical members with expertise in HIV medicine. The Panel is seeking candidates with expertise in antiretroviral therapy and the following areas:

Panel members critically evaluate new information and prepare guideline revisions. The candidates should be recognized experts in their areas of interest. The successful candidates will serve a 4-year term beginning April 2019, with potential for reappointment for an additional term.

The Panel is a Working Group of the Office of AIDS Research Advisory Council of the National Institutes of Health. The Panel is composed of over 40 members who are clinicians, researchers, academicians, HHS representatives, and community representatives with expertise in HIV management in the United States. The Panel meets monthly via teleconferencing and annually in a face-to-face meeting to review and critically evaluate emerging scientific data relating to antiretroviral therapy and to revise the Guidelines for the Use of Antiretroviral Agents in Adults and Adolescents Living with HIV. The latest guideline was published on October 25, 2018, and can be found at https://aidsinfo.nih.gov/.

Panel members are not financially compensated for their time commitment.
