Specific Aims:

The Emory CFAR's mission is to decrease HIV incidence, improve well-being and, ultimately, find a vaccine and a cure for HIV by fostering and supporting trans-disciplinary research targeting the Southern epidemic as a microcosm of the global HIV/AIDS pandemic.

In order to accomplish this, we:

  1. Develop, support, and expand high priority HIV/AIDS research that will prevent new infections, improve the well-being of people with or at risk for HIV, and move toward the discovery of a vaccine and a cure.

  2. Translate and disseminate HIV/AIDS research findings.

  3. Identify, train, mentor, and support the next generation of HIV/AIDS researchers and scientific leaders.


The CFAR at Emory University has been an NIH-funded Center for AIDS Research since 1998.

Additional funding is provided by the Georgia Research Alliance and multiple units of Emory University including the offices of the President and the University Provost, the Woodruff Health Science Center, the Emory University School of Medicine, the Rollins School of Public Health, the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, the Wiship Cancer Institute, and the Yerkes National Primate Research Center.
