The primary goal of the CFAR Research Integration Seminar Series (CRISS) is to bridge the gap among HIV researchers on the Boston University and Boston Medical Center campuses with faculty at Brown University. The Cores sponsor separate events with the primary goal of increasing core-to-core integration, resulting in grant applications both through the internal CFAR developmental grant program as well as through extramural funding for scholars and faculty interested in pursuing HIV research. The intention of the program is to serve as a platform for developing CFAR specific research interest groups and/or scientific working groups.
