This fellowship will prepare highly motivated individuals to become independent researchers in anti-infective clinical pharmacology. Specific research areas include quantitative pharmacology in HIV treatment, prevention, and cure. The fellow will benefit from the extensive HIV research infrastructure at UNC, including the Center for AIDS Research and the HIV Cure Center. The fellow will gain experience in all areas of research ranging from grant writing to manuscript publication and is expected to present research findings at scientific meetings. The fellow will develop the skills necessary to excel in clinical pharmacology research. Tailored to the fellow's goals, they will become proficient with the conduct and data analysis of clinical investigations, the use of preclinical model systems (cell and tissue culture and animal models), and bioanalytical (LC/MS/MS, IR MALDESI) and molecular (PCR, IHC) techniques. Course work in statistics, pharmacometrics, clinical trial design, and research ethics, along with the opportunity for teaching and clinical service are also offered.
