Training at CIRA

Yale AIDS Prevention Training Program (Y-APT)CIRA is a recognized hub for training, career development and mentorship of diverse scholars through historic and recent growth of national/international training programs. In 1999, CIRA established the NIMH-supported Yale AIDS Prevention Training Program (Y-APT) for postdoctoral and predoctoral Fellows. Over the years this program has enrolled 77 trainees from multiple disciplines, including many from underrepresented backgrounds.

Research Education Institute for Diverse Scholars (REIDS)We have made additional progress towards achieving greater diversity by providing intensive support for the development of diversity supplements and particularly through the R25 Research Education Institute for Diverse Scholars (REIDS). REIDS entails an unprecedented network of interdisciplinary scientists focusing on community-based and implementation science research drawn from across the Center, the Yale Schools of Medicine and Nursing, Institute for Community Research, and Center for Health, Intervention, and Prevention (at UConn). The REIDS program has 33 current and alumni fellows.

Our training programs and trainees are an exceptional resource for generating new research products and collaborations, with over 1200 peer-reviewed publications and over 200 funded grants since 2008.
