IMPAACT Early Career Investigator Mentored Research

2015 Annual Meeting

The IMPAACT Early Career Investigator Mentored Research program aims to support the development of early career investigators to enter the field of maternal/child HIV research and advance the mission of the IMPAACT Network. In coordination with mentors, early career investigators are invited to propose a project that takes advantage of data and/or samples generated by the IMPAACT Network.

An early career investigator is someone who is within 10 years of completion of training (from terminal degree or residency training) and is currently an Instructor/Lecturer, Assistant Professor or equivalent at their institution. For this award, IMPAACT aims to fund early career clinician-investigators who engage in participant-oriented research.

Early career investigators are provided funding to cover a portion of their time and expenses including travel and research materials/supplies. Successful applicants will be funded for 24 months, subject to certain restrictions.

We are currently not taking applications at this time.
