Strengthening Training and Advancement in Research (STAR) program funded through the CFAR Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Pilot Initiative (CDEIPI)

Enhancing pathway programs for underrepresented minorities boosts diversity in HIV research. The CFAR STAR program, led by Drs. Rana and Elopre, focuses on this. In 2023, STAR provided "HIV 101" sessions for local high school students and plans to expand the CDEIPI program with a peer mentoring component for Tuskegee University students.
