Cyber Mentors Program
This program is designed to prepare behavioral and social scientists for successful independent research careers in the area of HIV/AIDS and health disparities. The two-year long mentorship program utilizes state of the art distance learning technologies (e.g., webcasts, online classrooms, etc.) to prepare mentees to submit a successful NIH grant application and to facilitate developing professional relationships to support their research efforts.
Funding for HIV/AIDS Research
HIV/AIDS Research Funding Opportunities
A number of Federal agencies provide support for HIV/AIDS research. Agencies supporting HIV/AIDS research include the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Of course, this list is not definitive. Other agencies and foundations support AIDS research. For instance, one way to identify them is in the resource sections of HIV/AIDS research papers where support is acknowledged.
Currently Funded HIV/AIDS Research
The NIH rePORter is a searchable database of the biomedical and behavioral federally funded research and research training projects. The NIH rePORTer also acts as a database to find the most recent journal articles, fact sheets, and other information provided through federally funded grants.
