Providence/Boston Center for Aids Research (CFAR)


The Providence/Boston Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) provides several opportunities for faculty to receive mentorship from senior HIV/AIDS experts. 

Think Tank Sessions provide members with a chance to present and get feedback on early stage ideas for their CFAR developmental applications. 
Grant Writing Workshops provide HIV researchers of all levels of experience (post-doc, junior, and senior investigators) a forum in which to present their ideas for proposals and obtain feedback from an interdisciplinary group of senior faculty. 
Register by March 7th if you are planning on submitting for the September 7th NIH deadline.
Pre-award/Post-award mentorship allows junior investigators or those investigators new to HIV/AIDS to be linked with CFAR mentors prior to the submission of CFAR developmental applications.
