The Hope clinic team

Celebrating over 20 years of Hope

The Emory Hope Clinic is a nonprofit clinical research clinic located in Decatur, GA. Our clinic conducts innovative, community-based, scientifically grounded clinical trials to address the need for safe and effective interventions to prevent & treat major global infectious diseases such as influenza, yellow fever, shingles, HIV, and gonorrhea, as well as emerging diseases such as Ebola, Zika, and COVID-19.

The Emory Hope

The Hope Clinic is part of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Emory University School of Medicine, as well as the clinical trial arm of the Emory Vaccine Center, the largest and most comprehensive academic vaccine research center in the world. We partner with our community, other renowned academic research centers, and the Emory healthcare system, enabling us to bridge the gap between laboratory investigation and public health concerns. We are committed to improving the health of our local and global community and inspiring the next generation of researchers that will continue these efforts.

The Hope Clinic provides equitable clinical research access to all persons regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, (dis)ability, religion and citizenship. We aim to recruit and retain clinical research volunteers who reflect our community.

Research sponsorship for the Hope Clinic comes from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the biomedical industry, the Georgia Research Alliance (GRA), institutional resources, and philanthropic contributions.

As a not-for-profit organization, we rely on the private philanthropy of individuals, corporations, and foundations to continue our vital work. Consider donating to the Emory Hope Clinic today.
