The Centers for AIDS Research (CFAR) program at the National Institutes of Health provides administrative and shared research support to synergistically enhance and coordinate high quality AIDS research projects. CFARs accomplish this through core facilities that provide expertise, resources, and services not otherwise readily obtained through more traditional funding mechanisms.
The CFAR program emphasizes the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration, especially between basic and clinical investigators as well as behavioral scientists to support translational research. The CFAR program also encourages training and mentoring of young investigators as well as an inclusion of women and minorities.
