Enhancing the Success of Early Career Infectious Disease Researchers


UC San Diego Raising Advancement and Parity for Infectious Disease Researchers (RAPID) program is only one of two national faculty programs sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). The goal of the program is to provide strong mentorship, professional development, and research training to improve the long-term success of early career faculty and transitioning postdoctoral scholars from groups underrepresented in the biomedical workforce, including women, persons with disabilities, underrepresented racial/ethnic minorities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. Participants will choose one of three research tracks to be mentored and trained: Host Pathogens, HIV, or Global Health & Neglected Infectious Diseases.  

This one-year commitment begins with a Summer Institute from July 11-22, 2022, followed by a 2-day Mid-year Meeting and second Summer Institute in 2023, in sunny San Diego!
