Request for Applications – Fogarty-IeDEA Mentorship Program (FIMP)

The International Epidemiology Databases to Evaluate AIDS (IeDEA) Collaboration is an international research consortium established in 2006 by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to provide a rich resource for globally diverse HIV/AIDS data. The consortium consists of seven global regions: North America (NA-ACCORD); the Caribbean, Central and South America (CCASAnet); Asia-Pacific; East Africa; Central Africa; West Africa; and Southern Africa. To date, the consortium houses data on nearly 1.5 million adults and 150,000 children and adolescents living with HIV. This wealth of data is an excellent resource for training new investigators. In collaboration with Fogarty, six IeDEA regions working in low- and middle-income countries have created training opportunities under the Fogarty IeDEA Mentorship Program (FIMP). Within each region, two 18-month mentee slots will be open to current and recent Fogarty International Center (FIC) D43 trainees, and IeDEA affiliated investigators, for a total of 12 positions globally.

Applications Open: September 16, 2019
