CFAR Core Facilities provide biostatistical, laboratory, study design, and other services that are quality-controlled, cost-effective and convenient. These services are supported by the CFAR, freeing investigators of the need to set up and pay for these services themselves. Below is an overview of the CFAR Cores.
The Administrative Core supports collaborative, multidisciplinary, translational HIV/AIDS research and training at our consortium institutions.
Behavioral Innovations Core
The Behavioral Innovations Core (BIC) is the intersection of behavioral science and digital health, and provides support, knowledge, and skills in diverse contexts to further HIV prevention and care research while addressing health equity, access, ethics and policy.
Biomarkers, Prevention and Interventions for HIV-associated malignancies and NCDs (BPIN) Core
The BPIN Core provides assays and data instruments to enable studies of HIV-associated malignancies.
Clinical and Comorbidity Research Core
The Clinical and Comorbidity Research Core helps researchers access and interpret the comprehensive database of the UW HIV Cohort Study.
Data Sciences and Methods Core
The Data Sciences and Methods Core provides a central resource of biostatistical expertise to improve the conception, design, and analysis of HIV/AIDS studies.
The Developmental Core supports career development and fosters multidisciplinary collaborations with an emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Immunology, Retrovirology and Cure Core
The Immunology Retrovirology and Cure Core provides advanced tools and training for evaluating humoral and cellular responses to HIV infection.
Implementation Science Core
The Implementation Science Core provides resources to develop implementation science expertise within the CFAR community.
