The CAB is the link between CFAR researchers and our communities, and our goal is to ensure that all people can benefit from scientific advances in prevention, treatment and cure of HIV/AIDS.

The program provides training and context for the global AIDS epidemic, arguably the most pressing public health issue of our time. It equips future professionals in health and social science disciplines to address the complex interplay of biomedical, social, economic, gender, political and geographic factors that impact the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

About

The Administration Core supports collaborative, multidisciplinary, translational HIV/AIDS research and training at our consortium institutions (University of Washington, Fred Hutch, Center for Infectious Disease Research, Seattle Children's) through coordinating research and training programs, and clinical services; international technical assistance; promoting growth of funding for HIV research and training; supporting development of scientific expertise of faculty; providing educational opportunities and developing HIV-related curriculum; providing scientific communication to investigators and trainees; procuring space for these activities; promoting inter-CFAR activities; and supporting community outreach.

The Core is also responsible for the operational management of the CFAR, including strategic planning; grants, facilities, personnel, and program management; finance and administration; advertising CFAR services and programs; support of Core and Program functions; external relations; coordinating seminars and conferences; securing and managing institutional support and donor funding; monitoring and evaluation; and communications.

Activities

Among its many activities, the Administration Core provides support for education and training, funding and fundraising, and communications.

Education and Training

CFAR Seminar Series - this monthly seminar series provides a forum for presenting and discussing state-of-the-art research findings in HIV pathogenesis, virology, care, and treatment, and provides an opportunity for ongoing enhanced communication and collaboration among HIV researchers in many disciplines.  

Other educational and training opportunities co-sponsored by the Administration Core include:

AIDS Clinical Conference – monthly conference designed to increase the knowledge of healthcare practitioners about HIV/AIDS

STD and AIDS Research Symposium – annual symposium featuring research presentations by pre- and post-doctoral trainees in STD and AIDS research, CFAR awardees, and STI Center awardees.

Principles of STD and HIV Research Summer Course – annual two-week intensive course on STD and HIV research, with an interdisciplinary focus

Implementation Science Mini-Course – annual one-day course designed to help researchers and program managers understand the theory and methodology of operations research and implementation science (formerly the Operations Research Mini-Course)

Multidisciplinary Graduate Certificate Program in HIV and STIs – a linked series of credit-bearing graduate courses to equip future professionals in health and social science disciplines to address the complex interplay of biomedical, social, economic, gender, political, and geographic factors that impact the spread of HIV and other STIs.

Other training opportunities can be found at the Center for AIDS and STD training page and the UW Department of Global Health website.

Funding and Fundraising

The Administration Core provides support to and oversees funding for the Developmental Core and International Core award programs.  View our Find Funding page for more information on CFAR funding opportunities.  The Core also provides support for the Creative and Novel Ideas in HIV Research (CNIHR) funding program.  Occasionally, opportunities for supplemental research funding become available, which are managed by the Administration Core.  Projects recently supported by CFAR supplemental funding include:

  • "Implementation and evaluation of PrEP in Detroit: A Public Health-CFAR collaboration", Project Director: Matthew Golden
  • "Diversity Supplement: Implications of exposure to home air pollution for impaired neurodevelopment in HIV-infected infants", Project Director: Laurén Gómez

The Administration Core promotes fund-raising for HIV/AIDS research, through interactions with donors and the UW Advancement Office.  For more information about donating for HIV/AIDS research, go to our Donation page.

Communications

The Administration Core tracks CFAR membership – faculty, research scientists, and trainees involved in HIV/AIDS research at our consortium institutions.  CFAR members are eligible to receive CFAR services.  For more information, view our CFAR Membership page.  The Core also maintains a general mailing list for non-members which can be accessed at our Mailing List page.
