Developmental Core

The central purpose of the Emory CFAR Developmental Core is to provide needed support to promising early stage HIV investigators as they transit the arc from unfunded mentee, to NIH-funded independent investigator, to HIV research mentor in their own right.

The Core is physically located in the Claudia Nance Rollins Building of the Rollins School of Public Health.

Services Offered by the Core


  • Proposal and manuscript development support
  • Writing and editorial support
  • Career development programs for early stage investigators
