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. (more)
CFAR Think Tank Sessions are modeled after the reality TV program “Shark Tank,” the goal of which is to provide investigators at all levels a chance to present and get feedback on early stage ideas for grants and proposals. (more)
K Award Workshops are intended to engage post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty in a six-month proposal development curriculum characterized by milestone driven progress and formal review by an advisory board of 3-5 advisors. (more)
