Rising Star Award

Annual award recognizing
an outstanding SD CFAR emerging investigator


Each year the San Diego Center for AIDS Research (SD CFAR) recognizes an outstanding early stage (emerging) investigator based on abstract submissions. In 2018, all abstracts accepted for our Annual Research Day submitted by emerging investigators were entered into the competition and a winner selected. Last year . . .

All emerging HIV investigators at SD CFAR institutions
were invited to submit their best abstract written in 2019!
