Project Description

The evolution of the Brown/Tufts AITRP program reflects active and ongoing collaborations between Brown and Tufts faculty and AIDS researchers in India, the Philippines, Cambodia, and western Kenya. It plans to add a pilot project with the University of Ghana where there is existing NIH and foundation-funded programs that focus on pharmacology, TB/HIV co-infection.

This program proposes to strengthen the relationships between the key institutions in the countries where training is occurring, with an increased focus on selecting candidates either to participate in degree-related programs and/or advanced post-doctoral training. Specifically, focus will be on longer term training, advanced degree training at either Brown or Tufts. Trainees may elect to participate in MPH, Masters Programs in Biostatistics, or Clinical Research, as well as PhD programs. In addition, there will be one year, post doctoral mentored research training courses in a variety of clinical research disciplines, including Molecular Virology, Clinical Trial Research Design, HIV Prevention Research, Women's Health, Nutrition and Metabolic Studies, as well as Pharmacology.
