Interdisciplinary Training Grant in AIDS Research

The Biostatistics/Epidemiology Training Grants in AIDS prepares graduate students and postdoctoral fellows for biostatistical and epidemiological research directed against the HIV epidemic. The program emphasizes strong training in statistical methodology, epidemiology, and related biologic areas. Students majoring in Biostatistics minor in Epidemiology and vice versa. Both have a second minor in a related field such as virology, biology, health policy, population sciences, or behavioral science. The overall objective of the training program is to combine strong methodological training with an extensive practical exposure to relevant problems and an introduction to specialized research on problems important to combating the HIV epidemic. The presence of expertise in virology, microbiology, and health care issues at the School adds to the unique and strong environment for this training program.
