Would you like to conduct independent research with a worldwide collaborative clinical trials network that develops and tests the safety and efficacy of interventions designed to prevent HIV transmission?
Funded HPTN Scholars will:
- Work with their mentor(s) to acquire new knowledge, skills and connections to further their careers as independent investigators in HIV prevention science
- Develop a research project using data from completed or ongoing HPTN studies and complete their project within the Scholars Program cycle (18 months)
- Present the findings of their project at the HPTN Annual Meeting (and preferably at one or more other scientific meetings) and submit a manuscript at the end of the Scholars Program cycle.
Through the experience of the program, Scholars will become knowledgeable of the process of doing research in an NIH-funded research network and have the opportunity to build their research networks within the context of the HPTN
