by HPTN Substance Use Scientific Committee

The Substance Use Scientific Committee (SUSC) at HIV Prevention and Trials Network (HPTN) has developed a web-based, interactive Substance Use Measurement Identification (SUMI) tool to assist researchers to identify the proper measures and survey behavioral tools to assess substance use in the setting of HIV. Based on the parameters entered by the user, the tool will list appropriate survey instruments relevant to particular substance use domains that the user plans to measure. This free, web-based tool will be available to researchers around the globe.

We wish to make our users aware of the PhenX Toolkit (Phenotypes and eXposures), which provides recommended standard data collection protocols for conducting biomedical research. The Toolkit provides detailed protocols for collecting data and tools to help investigators incorporate these protocols into their studies. Using protocols from the PhenX Toolkit facilitates cross-study analysis, potentially increasing the scientific impact of individual studies.


The SUMI Project was supported by the National Institutes of Health under Award Number UM1AI068619. HPTN receives its funding from three NIH Institutes: the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
