Mentoring Program Supports New Generation of HIV Researchers

JAMA. 2006;296(7):757-758. doi:10.1001/jama.296.7.757

As the AIDS epidemic reaches the midpoint of its third decade, HIV researchers in San Francisco have taken steps to empower the next generation of scientists to join the war against the potentially deadly infection. They have launched an ambitious mentoring initiative, targeted at developing and encouraging young researchers committed to a career in HIV research.

The program, which was started in 2004 by the Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) in San Francisco, matches postdoctoral scholars and early career faculty with well-established senior faculty at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF), the Gladstone Institute of Virology and Immunology, and other local affiliated institutions. The program is believed to be the first of its kind, focused on supporting the goals of young investigators in basic, clinical, and behavioral research in HIV.
