Alliance Coordinating Office (ACO)

Led by an expert team, the ACO will work with researchers, funders and stakeholders across Canada to strengthen Canada’s HIV vaccine research efforts.

Dr. Allan Ronald, the ACO’s Scientific Advisor, is a world-renowned leader in HIV prevention with extensive international collaborations. He is currently a co-principal investigator on two Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation research grants in Uganda and was a founding member of the Academic Alliance for the Prevention and Care of HIV/AIDS.

Supported by a nimble staff, leveraging the administrative resources of the International Centre for Infectious Diseases (ICID) and reporting to the CHVI Advisory Board, Dr. Ronald and the ACO staff will position the ACO as an enabler of Canada’s national and international HIV vaccine research efforts.
