The Department of Neurology at Johns Hopkins University has an R25 grant through the NIH/NIMH (R25MH080661) to conduct a NeuroHIV online course called Translational Research in NeuroHIV and Mental Health (TRNAMH). It is open to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty located inside or outside of the USA – especially those from underrepresented minority backgrounds (URM’s) or those who do research in diversity-related issues pertaining to HIV/AIDS. The grant pays for all of the fees associated with this online course (auditing is free).
The program also offers pilot awards up to $20,000 on a competitive basis annually as long as the applicant has taken the course. Additionally, applicants will be eligible for the research scholar component, which supports promising HIV/AIDS researchers with hands-on mentorship opportunities with experts in the field. The next course begins Tuesday, August 27 so please pass this along to anyone you think might be interested in taking the course.
