The D-CFAR supports career development the next generation of URMC HIV/AIDS researchers through a mentoring program that matches outstanding, experienced mentors with diverse, young mentees through multidisciplinary mentoring teams that supplement the traditional mentor-mentee dyad. Requests for mentoring support or grant review services should be submitted to Jennifer Lynch.
All recipients of New Faculty pilot awards are required to participate in the mentoring program. In addition, D-CFAR members who are NIH-defined early-stage investigators or investigators who have limited prior research experience are strongly encouraged to participate.
Mentoring committees are comprised of 2-3 faculty members from diverse departments/disciplines (aligned to the overall interests of the mentee), plus the primary mentor. The group will meet quarterly to formally review research progress and productivity by the mentee, and to provide advice and support as needed. Mentorial team members may be drawn from members of the D-CFAR mentor pool, or from other groups/units, as necessary.
CTSI Development Programs
D-CFAR mentees and mentors are encouraged to take advantage of CTSI workshops, training sessions and courses. Offerings include Faculty Development Workshops, monthly Faculty Development Seminars, an annual day-long Faculty Development Colloquium, a half-day conference for women faculty, and an Academic Leadership Series.
