Mission

The mission of the Center for AIDS Research is to foster collaborative and interdisciplinary research, support HIV research career development of young investigators, and serve HIV investigators at our affiliated institutions.

Core Services Offered

CFAR Core Facilities provide biostatistical, laboratory, study design, and other services that are quality-controlled, cost-effective and convenient. These services are supported by the CFAR, freeing investigators of the need to set up and pay for these services themselves. Visit our core curriculum for our course listings.
