Bringing science and development together through original news and analysis

IAS-NIDA Fellowship Programme

With the support of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the International AIDS Society (IAS) has established the IAS-NIDA Fellowship Programme focusing on HIV and drug use, with the goal of contributing to advances in the scientific understanding of drug use and HIV, while fostering international collaborative research on HIV and drug use. The fellowship programme is awarded as a stipend of US$75,000 in two categories: to a junior scientist for 18-month post-doctoral training, or to a well-established HIV researcher for an eight-month-long professional development training at leading host institutes excelling in HIV-related drug use research. In 2013, up to four fellowships will be awarded. Successful applicants will be invited to the 7th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention (IAS 2013), from 30 June to 3 July 2013 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where the awards ceremony will be held.
