The IRFN, with funding from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), provides training and mentoring to clinical and basic scientists interested in careers in neuroAIDS research.
Training experiences emphasize the interdisciplinary and translational nature of clinical problems in neuroAIDS in order to prepare future scientists to tackle emerging questions in the field.
The IRFN pairs trainees with mentors from clinical and basic science backgrounds according to their research interests, and provides a clinical literacy program in neuroAIDS for basic scientists.
IRFN Fellows are exposed to cutting-edge scientific environments and have contact with some of the most respected neuroAIDS researchers in the world.
IRFN Fellows have access to resources at UCSD’s HIV Neurobehavioral Research Program (HNRP) and the Del E. Webb Center for Neurosciences, Aging and Stem Cell Research Center at the Sanford-Burnham Institute for Medical Research (SBIMR)
