The central purpose of the Emory CFAR Developmental Core is to provide needed support to promising junior faculty as they transit the arc from unfunded mentee, to NIH-funded independent AIDS investigator, to HIV research mentor in their own right.
The Core provides this support through a Comprehensive Platform of Assistance and Training in HIV Research (PATH) initiative that provides a broad, integrated program of funding and mentoring support.
PATH comprises four components -- research funding, mentoring assistance, proposal support, and professional development -- that collectively form an integrated platform of services across the 'idea to independence and beyond' continuum.
