Pfizer Initative in International Health-CGH Research Award in Infectious Disease

The Pfizer-CGH Research Award in Infectious Disease was established to encourage emerging student investigators in developing innovative, hypothesis-driven research which examine infectious diseases in developing areas around the world. Successful research planning incorporates the expertise of faculty, the research and health foci of relevant institutions as well as the academic and career interests of the investigator.

The Pfizer-CGH Research Award in Infectious Disease is open to UVa Medical School students, residents and UVa undergrad and graduate students from disciplines across grounds. Most medical students conduct their project as follows:

  • between their 1st and 2nd year 
  • between their 3rd and 4th year under "special student status"
  • during their 4th year as an extended elective

 

Interested applicants are encouraged to review the existing research collaborations and contact PIIH and CGH affiliated faculty to discuss your proposal.

Please see the application. The full proposal deadline for the Pfizer Initiative and CGH-University Scholar Award is 7 December 2012.
