The UW/Fred Hutch Center for AIDS Research recently announced the recipients of
their 2022 Mentored International Investigator Award (MIIA). These awards are to encourage international junior investigators at an advanced stage of training or recently independent to conduct independent research with close mentorship from senior faculty. This research should ultimately lead to acquiring preliminary data to obtain funding to continue their HIV/AIDS research careers. One of our very own HVTN investigators received the award this year! Join us in congratulating Dr. Jorge Gallardo-Cartagena of the CITBM site in Lima, Peru!
