The Junior Faculty Research Fellow in Infectious Disease is in its inaugural year, 2016. The fellowship supports junior faculty performing research in Animal Modeling of Human Diseases with a focus on infectious disease or pathogen-host interactions. The goal of this program is to enable career advancement of junior faculty to the Associate Professor level by facilitating an increased number of fundable grant submissions through a mentoring program in animal models of infectious disease. The biggest priority and challenge for Junior Faculty is securing their first extramurally funded award. A core mission of the Center for Comparative Medicine within the Schools of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, is to provide junior faculty with mentoring support to develop and secure extramural funding to carry out an extended research project.
