Training at CIRA

T32 Interdisciplinary HIV Prevention Training Program CIRA is now 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. A fourth renewal was awarded in 2014, taking the fellowship through to 2019. Over the years this program has enrolled 77 trainees from multiple disciplines, including many from underrepresented backgrounds.

R25 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 research drawn from across the Center, the Yale School of Nursing, Institute for Community Research, and Center for Health, Intervention, and Prevention (at UConn). The REIDS program has 30 current and alumni fellows.

Our training programs and trainees are an exceptional resource for generating new research products and collaborations, with over 900 peer-reviewed publications and over 140 funded grants since inception.
