Scientific Working Groups

The DC CFAR currently supports research groups that bring together investigators from diverse fields who share common research interests and goals related to HIV/AIDS and collaborate in seeking NIH funding and other research activitiy. Below is a list of Scientific Working Groups currently supported by the DC CFAR:

Sexual and Gender Minorities (SGM): The SWG has 22 active participants from seven DC CFAR institutions (AU, DC DOH, GW, GU, HU, WWH) and from the DC community. In addition, a number of SWG members collaborate with community-based organizations, including La Clinica del Pueblo, NoVa Salud, Us Helping Us, and HIPS. The SWG provides a forum for more senior investigators who receive funding from the NIH in this area to interact with and support each other as well as providing mentorship and support to early stage and transitioning investigators.
