Clinical Trials Center

CTC volunteer receiving injection from uniformed doctor

The Clinical Trials Center (CTC) was established in early 1992 to support Army and Navy investigators in their mission to develop new vaccines, drugs, and diagnostic systems to meet high-priority Department of Defense and national security needs. As part of WRAIR, the CTC is fully integrated within a network designed to bring products to market with an average of 5-10 new studies each year.

Since its inception, the CTC has conducted over 150 clinical trials of drugs and vaccines for a variety of infectious diseases, including Ebola, Japanese encephalitis, Zika, HIV and many others.

Recruiting Studies

We are doing this research study to test a new vaccine for yellow fever, because there is a major shortage of the current approved yellow fever vaccine (VF-VAX). There is also a need for a new yellow fever vaccine that is quicker and easier to make.
This specimen collection study is seeking to enroll volunteers from the community to identify a group of individuals for a phase 1 clinical trial that’s currently in development by WRAIR and for other SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 related trials.
