Prospective Training Scholars

Columbia University’s HISTP is looking for promising new scientists from underrepresented groups who are building HIV-related research programs focusing on dissemination and implementation.


Dissemination and Implementation

There is an urgent need to increase dissemination and implementation (D&I) research to ensure that effective HIV prevention interventions are delivered to the communities that need them; a new generation of HIV researchers needs to be trained to conduct such research to make a major impact in reducing new HIV infections, particularly among communities of color.
