The HIV Center for Clinical and Behavioral Studies at New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University was established in 1987 under the leadership of Anke A. Ehrhardt, Ph.D., and Zena Stein, M.D., as one of the first NIMH AIDS Research Centers.  Our work has been supported by the NIMH AID Research Centers Program along with a large number of individual federal and private foundation research and training grants. 

Now in its 29th year, and directed since 2013 by Robert H. Remien, Ph.D. with Alex Carballo-Diéguez, Ph.D., and Claude Ann Mellins, Ph.D., the HIV Center is one of the oldest and most productive continuously funded AIDS research centers in the United States – working at the interface of behavioral, social, and biomedical sciences.
