The UW/Fred Hutch Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) is delighted to announce this year's Mentored International Investigator Awardee. The Mentored International Investigator Awards are to encourage international junior investigators (at an advanced stage of training or recently independent) to conduct independent research with close mentorship from senior faculty. This research should ultimately lead to acquiring preliminary data to obtain funding to continue their HIV/AIDS research careers.
We are excited to announce that we have chosen Irene Njuguna as our 2019 Awardee.
